Notes on private health insurance:

As a student, you can be exempted from compulsory insurance and take out private health insurance, for example. Private health insurance companies are not health insurance companies in the sense of the Social Security Code, which regulates health insurance for students. Therefore, privately insured students must also contact a statutory health insurance company in order to obtain the required proof of enrollment. This decision should be weighed carefully. The exemption cannot be revoked. It is valid at least as long as one studies. Further information can be obtained from the health insurance companies.
