What is covered by TK-Student Health Insurance?
When you sign up for a TK-Student Health Insurance policy, you will enjoy the same range of benefits as ordinary German policy holders
There are no limitations or uncovered conditions for students - and you will be able to access the same range of providers without restrictions.
The features covered by student policies include:
Two dental check-ups per year for holders and their dependents. Most basic dental procedures will be wholly or partially covered, though some co-payments may be needed.
Policyholders can use their eHealth card to fund appointments at general doctors, physiotherapists, mental health practitioners, podiatrists, back specialists, and even providers of alternative therapies such as homeopathy.
Most hospital procedures will be covered, either completely or in part.
The Bonus Points program delivers extra benefits such as acupuncture appointments or gym membership for customers who follow healthy guidelines. Health coverage extends across the European Union.
How do I get my TK eHealth card?
TK also offers other services for students, and the TK eHealth card is probably the most important.
To obtain a TK eHealth card, policyholders must supply a passport photo via TK's online portal. After taking out a policy, you will receive documentation from TK detailing how to apply for the card, so don't worry. Just take their advice and provide the photo. Your card should be supplied in a matter of days.
Students are completely covered by their TK health policy, whether they take out an eHealth card or not. So it's not essential to do so. However, it's a useful addition to anyone's wallet.
