Health Insurance


All fellows are required to have sufficient health insurance coverage in Germany throughout the entire course of their fellowship at the ICI. This health insurance coverage must comprise the following benefits:

  • Medical and dental treatment
  • Provision of pharmaceuticals, bandaging and other remedies
  • Hospital care
  • Medicinal benefits for rehabilitation
  • Benefits during pregnancy and childbirth

You may be able to apply for a waiver of compulsory coverage if you can provide proof of sufficient health insurance coverage from your homeland. For details, please contact your health insurance, which should also be able to advise you on how to take out a German statutory health insurance.

A health insurance for travellers is insufficient for fellows staying longer than three months!
