Übersicht Bausteine

The insurance package for scholarship holders of an Max Planck Institute consists of three insurances. You can combine the insurance cover according to your needs with an health- and nursing care insurance, daily sickness allowance, liability insurance and an accident insurance. In Germany the liability insurance and the accident insurance are optional insurances. Because the health- and nursing care insurance is an compulsory insurance in Germany, you need both of them.


Beginning, end and payment for the insurance package / tariffs

Application:
The insurance package can be applied even before the entry to Germany.

Beginning
:
You can start at every day of the month (not earlier than the date of your entry to Germany) with the respective insurance. The technical commencement is always the first of a month.
For the health and nursing-care insurance:
1. Commencement with application to the end of the month following the entry to Germany.
If the application is effected (reception with the insurer) to the end of the month following the entry to Germany, the material commencement of the insurance coverage generally is the date of entry. A commencement for the future is only possible up to 3 months after the entry, if another insurance coverage can be proven. In case of material commencement dates up to the 15th of a month the premium for the total month is to be paid. In case of material commencement dates after the 15th of a month no premium has to be paid. The payment of the premiums then begins with the following month.

Information about the types of insurance

In which case, what insurance is useful, refer to the following short overview.


Health- and nursing care insurance

Liability insurance

Accident insurance
Because of the insurance requirement in Germany everyone needs a private or public health insurance. Because it is not possible for scholarship holders to get access to the public health insurance, the only option is to choose a private health insurance. The benefits include outpatient, inpatient and dental treatments. Tariffs have to meet the requirements of the § 257 SGB V (contribution grants for employees) in order to obtain the health care allowance of the Max Planck Institutes.
Nursing care insurance is a compulsory insurance and is always requested by the health insurance.
Daily sickness allowance: When you are ill longer than 6 weeks, you get the insured amount for each day of illness after six weeks.
Each person is responsible for every caused damages without any limitation. The private liability insurance covers therefore the risks of everyday life, if you accidentally damage another person or the property of another person.The accident insurance pays the agreed insurance benefit if a permanent physical or mental impairment persists due to an accident. Depending on the nature and severity of the impairment itself determines the amount of disbursement of the sum insured.
