Mawista was the smoothest insurance experience that I ever had. All the procedures were handled very rapidly and accurate. Fortunately, I never needed the insurance in a hospital thanks to my good health. Yet, I had the feeling that everything would be very easy going with Mawista. I will be recommending it to anyone who needs a insurance in Germany. Thank you!
MAWISTA is a good choice for foreign students and researchers in Germany. I was insured for more than 3 years. I was definitely not using the insurence often, but every time that I had to, I recieved detailed and helpful information from their call centre and every time (sic!) that I applyed for the reimbursement I got it. If you are looking for a private Versicherung for a short or middle period, that can definitely be a nice choice.
