Health insurance (Krankenversicherung)

Health insurance is mandatory in Germany. Employees of TU Darmstadt are normally required to apply for statutory health insurance. Health insurance contributions are deducted directly from your salary. Here is a list of statutory health insurance providers.

Non-working family members (partners, children) can be co-insured free of charge on your statutory health insurance policy.

Researchers who are financed by a scholarship or who are self-financing are required to purchase a suitable private health insurance policy. Each non-working family member (partners, children) also need their own suitable private health insurance coverage. They are not co-insured on your personal private health insurance policy. Please directly if you need support finding suitable private health insurance providers.
