Why take out health insurance for your stay abroad?

With Care College coverage you are protected from the costs of necessary medical treatment abroad.

    The insurance coverage also applies if the stay abroad includes stays in more than one host country and the change is necessary as part of the language learning process or course of study/training program. Brief stays in the home country and in third countries of up to 6 weeks per policy year are possible (policy year: 12 months starting from commencement of coverage).

    • your confirmation of coverage
    • a medical treatment certificate
    • a questionnaire pertaining to insurability
    • the insurance terms and conditions incl. consumer information as well as a fact sheet on data processing and an excerpt from the Insurance Contract Act (VVG)

    We will then debit the premium(s) from your account in accordance with your chosen payment interval giving your policy number(s).

Payment to Care Concept AG is deemed made if a pre-authorized payment mandate is issued when the insurance is taken out and the account number provided contains sufficient funds when the direct debit nis executed.
  1. Duration of coverage and waiting periods
    The insurance policy must be taken out for the entire duration of the stay. The period begins and ends on the dates stated in the policy; the coverage should be taken out within 31 days of entry

    If you have already left the country, or entered the country more than 31 days ago, you can nonetheless take out insurance. In this case a general qualifying period of 31 days applies merely to the health insurance. There is no waiting period for accidents, or if you can demonstrate prior cover immediately preceding the new policy.

    Should your stay last longer than planned you can simply take out a follow-up policy. The application must be sent online to Care Concept AG by using the following link: renewals online before expiration of the original policy, and the insurer must explicitly approve it. In the case of extensions, only insured events that arise after applying for an extension are covered. It is therefore advisable to take out coverage for longer periods from the outset. The maximum duration of coverage of – including all extensions – is five years for health insurance.
  3. Termination - Cancellation
    Premature termination is possible if the insured person
    • leaves Germany or EU/Schengen states, or returns from the foreign trip, prematurely, or

    The policy can be terminated at the earliest on the date on which Care Concept AG receives the corresponding termination notification in writing. An administration fee of EUR 5.00 will be charged for every refund of premium paid in excess.

If you have any questions about the insurance coverage or other insurance procedures, please call the toll free service number above.


Liability claims
In the event of liability claims no acceptance of fault should be indicated to the injured party. Care Concept AG will alone investigate which party is at fault.

Accidents
If the accident should result in death, this fact is to be communicated to Care Concept AG within 48 hours at the latest, even if the accident has already been reported.

Illnesses
If you need outpatient treatment, please present the medical treatment certificate - signed by you and sent to you with the confirmation of coverage – to the doctor. In order to save you unnecessary administrative expenses, we pay the benefits listed in the policy in Germany and Austria directly to the doctor, after deducting any applicable deductible. If undergoing inpatient treatment, please arrange that the hospital request a declaration of cost coverage from Care Concept AG via fax at + 49 228 97735-922. Any prescription charges incurred – when you are entitled to them – will be reimbursed to the account specified to us by the policyholder once we have received the corresponding medical invoice(s).
Note: For treatment abroad, please send the invoices you have paid in original form to Care Concept AG in Bonn. Please also ensure that the doctor makes a note of the diagnosis on the documents. Any reimbursement will then be made to the policyholder’s account provided.


Treatment costs for injuries due to accidents are covered by the health insurance. Long-term disability claims can only be covered, however, by an accident insurance policy. We therefore recommend that you take out accident and liability coverage.


Liability insurance protects you against claims for damages from third parties.
Accident insurance protects you against the financial consequences of a decline in your ability to work due to disability or death following an accident.

Blocked Account

Care Concept Blocked AccountIf you wish to come to Germany as a language school participant from certain non-EU countries, you are obliged to prove that you have sufficient financial means for your stay in Germany when applying for the visa. A blocked account serves this purpose.

You pay an amount determined by the embassy (usually € 853 per month of your stay in Germany). During your time as a language student in Germany you do not have free access to this account. You can only dispose of the monthly blocked amount (usually € 853).

We offer you the possibility to apply for a blocked account directly after your health insurance. In this way, you can obtain two important requirements for your visa directly from us. Simply click on the link that appears at the end of the health insurance application.

If you have any questions, please contact our Customer Service Center by phone at +49 228 97735-44.

Information on public student insurance

Study carefree while enjoying excellent insurance coverage!

If you would like to study in Germany later, you must as a rule be insured via a public health insurance provider (please see excerpts from the German Social Security Code). We give you the opportunity to then move seamlessly into a statutory health insurance coverage.

To make it easy for you, we offer you a special service: For enrollment in a college or university you need a certificate from a statutory health insurance provider. We arrange this for you.

Your benefits

  • optimum insurance coverage from the very first day from a single source
  • foreign language support
  • affordable premium with outstanding service

Premium payments

The premium for student health insurance and long-term care insurance is established uniformly and at the same level for all public health insurance carriers. There is also an additional contribution from each individual fund. In total as an example, for the summer semester 2020 these are

  • for health insurance EUR 88,13 per month
  • for nursing insurance EUR 22,94 per month or EUR 24,82 (for persons without children from 23 years of age).

It’s as easy as this

With us you enjoy complete insurance coverage from the first day of the semester on with all the added advantages in benefits and services. When enrolling in a college or university, you just need to present your confirmation of insurance coverage. The college will then report to the health insurance provider that you have started your studies.

Without this confirmation you cannot start your course of study!
