Health insurance

Information for the health insurance procedure SMV

The new student health insureance procedure (SMV) requires electronic transfer of the relevant data between universities and health insurers. From 2022, according to ยง 199a SGB V, data transfer between universities and health insurers must be exclusively electronic in both directions. This electronic procedure replaces the previous paper procedure.

The health insurance funds report to the university:

  • Insurance status (M10)
  • Start of insurance in the event of a change of health insurance fund (M11)
  • Delay in payment of health insurance contributions (M12) > important: re-registration for the next semester is automatically blocked!
  • Settlement of arrears in health insurance contributions (M13) > the re-registration block is removed, only then is re-registration for the next semester possible

EAH Jena reports to the health insurance company:

  • Start of studies with semester start and day of enrollment (M20)
  • End of studies with end of semester and day of de-registration/termination (M30)

What does that mean for you?

At the latest at the time of enrollment, we require an electronic notification of your insurance status from your health insurance company. Please contact your health insurance company as early as possible so that they can send the required M10 notification to us electronically. The notification will be sent with a time delay.

Please quote our sender number H00001255.

 

Special information for EU citizens

For applicants from EU countries who have a European Health Insurance Card, no additional insurance is required in Germany. You only need to present your European Health Insurance Card to a German statutory health insurance company of your choice, so that a confirmation of exemption from compulsory insurance can be issued digitally from there. (Registration reason M10 for the EAH Jena).

Please quote our sender number H00001255 for this purpose.

 

Special information for citizens from countries that have a social security agreement with Germany (e.g. Switzerland or Turkey)

If you have statutory health insurance in your home country, ask your insurance agent for a form certifying your health insurance coverage abroad. The forms have different names depending on the country of origin, e.g. E-111, AT 11, ATN11 or BH6. The form must be presented to a German statutory health insurance company so that a confirmation of exemption from compulsory insurance can be issued digitally from there. (Registration reason M10 for the EAH Jena) .

Please quote our sender number H00001255 for this purpose.

 

Special instructions for non-EU citizens

As soon as you are staying in Germany for your studies, you have to register with a health insurance company. You are asked to submit the registration M10 electronically for the EAH Jena, with which the health insurance company informs the university whether you are insured with a health insurance company or not. The health insurance company will also take this opportunity to check whether you are exempt from compulsory health insurance in Germany (e.g. due to other insurance, also e.g. private or in the case of Ukrainian students according to the Asylum Seekers' Benefits Act). If the university receives the M10 "insured" message, everything is in order; if the M10 "not insured" message arrives, you must provide the university with proof of a corresponding exemption. As a rule, the health insurance company will then issue you with something in this regard.

Please quote our sender number H00001255 for this purpose.

Students who are already enrolled do not have to pay any attention to the change for the time being. The changeover will only affect you as soon as, for example, a change in health insurance takes place.

 

If the health insurance company has reported a delay in payment (reporting reason M12), you will receive a re-registration block for the coming semester. Only when your health insurance company has reported the settlement of the amounts in arrears (reporting reason M13) will this block be removed and you can re-register for the next semester. To do this, please quote our sender number H00001255.

If you change your health insurance company, we require an electronic notification of the change of health insurance company from your new health insurance company . Please contact your health insurance company so that they can send us the required M11 notification electronically.

Please quote our sender number H00001255 for this purpose.

Contact any statutory health insurance company, they will then notify us of the existence of private insurance. Please quote our sender number H0001255.
