Your advantages from EDUCARE24

What are the main aspects to know regarding insurance cover for your educational stay in Germany? We have compiled a list for you that includes the key advantages of EDUCARE24.

Advantage 1: Insurance cover - not only for students

Some student insurers’ products depend on their customers’ student status and deny reimbursements if this student status is inactive, be it only for a short while. EDUCARE24 is available to all foreign visitors, which stay in Germany or Europe as language students, regular students, trainees or guest scientists - independent of their residence status.

Advantage 2: Insurance coverage meets official legal requirements

Insurances for foreign guests are confronted to fulfill many requisitions. Some of the specifications which need to be given attention to are the regulations of the European Commission, the “Freizügigkeitsverordnung/EG” and Germany’s right of residence. Besides other specifications, EDUCARE24 meets these regulations and has established itself as a reliable and approved product.

Advantage 3: Health insurance without deductible

"Deductible" means that the insured person is obliged to cover a part of the treatment expenses. For example, a "deductible of € 25 per insured event" means that you have to pay € 25 of the medical bill yourself in each case of illness. The health insurance of EDUCARE24 does not comprise a deductible.

Advantage 4: Comprehensive cover

EDUCARE24 is more than just an ordinary travel health insurance policy. In addition to comprehensive health insurance abroad, it also provides you with accident, liability and deportation costs insurance.

Advantage 5: Easy to purchase online

It only takes a few minutes to purchase EDUCARE24 through our secure server. You will then receive the following documents:

  • an insurance certificate for your records and for submission to public authorities,
  • an insurance card for your wallet and
  • an "Ärzte-Info-Ticket" (medical info card) for direct billing with the physician.

Advantage 6: Insurance coverage for all periods not covered by compulsory health insurance

EDUCARE24 is a supplementary insurance covering all time periods not covered by compulsory health insurance. Foreign students can usually only acquire compulsory health insurance during a short period at the beginning of their main studies. For the time preceding their main studies and for most other cases we recommend EDUCARE24.

Advantage 7: Pregnancy and birth covered

Costs for medical examinations and treatments due to pregnancy and birth are covered by EDUCARE24 if the pregnancy occurs after the beginning of your insurance cover.

Advantage 8: Direct billing with doctors and hospitals

You will receive a medical info card (Ärzte-Info-Ticket) together with your insurance certificate. If you provide this ticket to your doctor or to the hospital, we can settle the billing directly with the doctor or the hospital.

Advantage 9: Includes insurance cover for children

Children and adolescent persons can be enrolled under the EDUCARE24 insurance plan. For Children under 6 years, insurance can only be effected if the accompanying legal guardian is also insured under the EDUCARE24 tariff.

Advantage 10: Stay informed with our safety app - always and everywhere

Get Dr. Walter’s brand new safety app MY-SAFETY-ASSISTANT for one year. After receipt of your password, you can download the app to your smartphone for free. This way, you will benefit from a wide range of information during your travels: push notifications about security issues, local news, direct dialing of emergency numbers and tracking services.

Advantage 11: Exact insurance period calculated to the day

Premiums are calculated depending on the number of months or part thereof. Should you return home early from your stay abroad, a phone call or an email is sufficient. We will then calculate your exact premium depending on the number of days you stayed abroad. You only pay for the actual period of insurance. No service fee will be charged for this reimbursement.

Advantage 12: Cover if you have a side job

It is of no importance to EDUCARE24 insurance coverage if you have a side job in addition to your primary cause of residence. You should, however, clarify with your employer if such a side job is subject to social insurance contributions.

Advantage 13: Cover includes holidays abroad

Insurance coverage also includes worldwide trips and stays abroad up to a maximum duration of six weeks, even in your homecountry. In case of a stay of more than six weeks, only the first six weeks are covered. Flight tickets, railway tickets or stamps in the passport can be used to verify the duration of the holiday.
