In case you won’t be able to be physically present at TU Berlin in the summer semester 2021 and are therefore planning to study from abroad by taking exclusively online classes and modules, you can request a waiver from a German statutory health insurer. The waiver document confirms that you are currently not obliged to statutory health insurance.
This document is not a permanent waiver of German compulsory health insurance according § 8 SGB V.
For all questions on this, please contact a German statutory health insurer of your choice. A document from TU Berlin confirming that you’re studying exclusively online might be required. You can download this document named “Onlinestudium” (online studies) from your TUB account (tuPORT) in the app “Notices and certificates”.
This waiver certificate issued by a German statutory health insurer must be submitted to TU Berlin for enrolment by uploading it as a PDF file onto tuPORT as “Current proof of health insurance”. In case, it is valid for only one semester, a regular proof of health insurance (as described above) must be uploaded onto tuPORT when re-registering for the winter semester 2021/22.
Please consider, if you enter Germany during the summer semester 2021, the waiver will become invalid and you have to insure at a German compulsory health insurance since the beginning of your enrollment as described above. Health insurance fees have to be paid since the beginning of enrollment as well.
Further information are available in the letter of the GKV Spitzenverband.
If you change your health insurance during your studies at TU Berlin, so please send us the new data via the request "Change of personal data". You will find this request in tuPORT in the app "My requests". An appropriate proof of your health insurance has to be uploaded as attachment. Please regard, a certificate from a German compulsory health insurance must contain the health insurer number (Betriebsnummer) and the health insurance contract number (Krankenversicherungsnummer).
