Your stay in Germany
Willkommen bei MAWISTA Student Pro
For international students, being successful in your studies starts with having the right health insurance. MAWISTA Student Pro is a high-quality private full health insurance that is specially tailored to the needs of international students at German universities (Bachelors, Masters, PhD students). The MAWISTA Student Pro tariff is recognised by all immigration authorities and universities.
MAWISTA Student Pro covers medical costs in the case of illness or an accident. You can visit any recognised doctor or dentist or simply get medical advice via video call in over 20 languages. Naturopathy provided by doctors is also included in the tariff.
MAWISTA Student Pro can be applied for either before or during your studies in Germany. The health insurance plan is valid for up to 5 years for studying in Germany. The tariff can be cancelled on a monthly basis, thus providing academics with a high degree of flexibility.
The health insurance plan also offers lots of flexibility outside Germany. The Student Pro tariff offers unlimited coverage in other EU countries, up to four weeks worldwide and even up to 12 weeks in your home country. If you then start your career while here, you can stay insured on a private health insurance tariff for an affordable price.
Note: If you need a visa to travel to Germany, we recommend taking out the MAWISTA Visum plan and switching to the MAWISTA Student Pro tariff once you are in Germany.

Frequently asked questions
Questions about the tariff
MAWISTA Student Pro insurance is valid in Germany for up to five years.
The health insurance plan provides coverage within the EU and Switzerland for up to four weeks.
In your home country, coverage is provided for up to 12 weeks.
The premium is an annual contribution that needs to be paid at the start of every insurance year. Alternatively, the premium can be paid monthly.
There is no minimum contract term. The insurance will end after 5 years at the latest.
The contract can be cancelled at the end of any month. Cancellation must be in writing and be submitted to the insurer at least 15 days before the end of the month.
Bei einer kleineren Erkrankung (zum Beispiel einer Grippe, Kopfschmerzen oder kleineren Unfällen) empfehlen wir das Aufsuchen eines Allgemeinarztes in der Nähe. Der behandelnde Arzt kann bei Bedarf an einen Facharzt überweisen. Bei Zahnschmerzen sollte man sich direkt an einen Zahnarzt wenden.
Bei starken Schmerzen, gravierenden Unfällen oder außerhalb ärztlicher Sprechzeiten (zum Beispiel am Wochenende), geht man zu einer Bereitschaftspraxis, die Notdienst hat, oder in ein Krankenhaus. Sollte eine stationäre Behandlung im Krankenhaus nötig sein (wie zum Beispiel aufgrund einer Operation), sollte umgehend der Versicherer kontaktiert werden, um die Details einer direkten Kostenübernahme zu klären. Diese verhindert, dass hohe Kosten auslegt werden müssen.
As soon as your application is approved, you will immediately receive your insurance certificate via email. Our certificate is recognised as a health insurance plan by the immigration authorities and universities/universities of applied sciences.
To help you obtain a residence permit from the immigration authorities, we would be happy to issue special certificates proving your private health insurance coverage on request.
The conditions of insurance described in section 5 outline the cases where there is no or limited insurance cover:
(1) When will the insurer not pay out?
The insurer will not pay out in the following cases:
- For illnesses and accidents intentionally caused by the insured person and their consequences.
- Accommodation which is necessary due to the need for nursing care or custody.
- Treatment by spouses, life partners, parents or children. Proven material expenses will be reimbursed by the insurer in accordance with the tariff.
- For bills from persons or from hospitals which the insurer has excluded from reimbursement for important reasons. This applies only if the insurer has notified the insured person of this before the insured event. Otherwise, the Insurer will continue to pay for 3 months from the date on which it notified the insured person.
(2) Does the insurer pay for withdrawal treatment costs?
The insurer does not pay for inpatient and outpatient withdrawal treatment unless this benefit is expressly included in the tariff.
(3) Does the insurer pay benefits in the case of war, civil unrest and terror?
The insurer does not pay if the insured person is injured due to acts of war in Germany.
The insurer also does not pay if the insured person is injured outside Germany because they have actively taken part in civil unrest.
The insurer also does not pay if the insured person is injured outside Germany due to acts of war or terror attacks. However, the insurer will pay if
- The German Foreign Office has not warned about travel to the destination or
- only issues a warning for the destination once the insured person is already there and
- they leave the area immediately or
are prevented from leaving the area through no fault of their own. This could occur if e.g. the insured person's life is threatened if they leave the area.
(4) Does the insurer pay in the case of a pandemic?
The insurer will pay if the insured person is treated as the result of a pandemic in Germany.
The insurer does not pay if the insured person is treated outside Germany as the result of a pandemic. However, the insurer will pay if
- The German Foreign Office has not warned about travel to the destination or
- only issues a warning for the destination once the insured person is already there and they cannot leave the area due to travel restrictions
(5) Does the insurer pay for spa or sanatorium treatments?
The insurer only pays for spa or sanatorium treatments if this is expressly included in the tariff.
(6) Does the insurer pay for rehabilitation treatment?
The insurer does not pay for rehabilitation treatment. If the treatment is a follow-up treatment, the insurer will pay in accordance with section 5, para. 7.
(7) Does the insurer pay for follow-up treatments?
The insurer will pay for medically necessary inpatient or outpatient follow-up treatments, provided it has previously agreed to this in writing.
However, the insured person does not require written agreement for the first 3 weeks of a follow-up treatment if the following conditions are met:
- The treatment starts within 28 days of a stay in hospital and
the treatment is carried out in a facility that has been recognised by a statutory rehabilitation provider for this treatment.
If the insured person cannot start the follow-up treatment within 28 days for medical reasons, they will require the agreement of the insurer. The insurer will grant permission provided this later follow-up treatment is medically necessary. This may, for example, be the case following radiotherapy for treatment of a tumour or if a suitable facility is not available in good time.
The insured person can apply to us for an extension of the follow-up treatment. The insurer will approve this provided it is medically necessary.
If the insured person can claim follow-up treatment from a statutory rehabilitation provider following acute inpatient treatment, they must claim these statutory benefits in the first instance. The insurer will then deduct the benefits offered by the statutory rehabilitation provider from the reimbursement.
There are cases in which the insured person could receive statutory rehabilitation treatment, but culpably does not do so. In this case, the insurer deducts the benefit that the statutory provider would have provided had it been claimed from the reimbursement.
(8) In which cases can the insurer reduce the benefit to a reasonable amount?
If a treatment or other measure for which benefits have been agreed exceed what is medically necessary, the insurer may reduce the benefits to a reasonable amount. If the costs for treatment or other benefits are conspicuously out of proportion with the benefits provided, the insurer does not have to provide such benefits.
(9) What happens when several payers are involved?
If the insured person can claim from another cost bearer, they must do so to the full extent possible first of all. The insurer will deduct these benefits from the reimbursement. If the insured person has claims against more than one payer as the result of the same insurance event, they will not receive more than the actual costs incurred as a total benefit.
Original bills are required. They must contain the following information:
- The first name and surname of the person treated
- The names of the illnesses (diagnosis)
- Dates of treatment and
- Details on individual services provided by the treating physician or codes from the fee schedules
- For hospital bills, we must also be able to identify
- Which optional benefits the insured person has used, which should be invoiced separately by the hospital
- or which class of care they have used
If the costs are incurred in a foreign currency, we will convert them into euros. We use the current exchange rates for the day on which we receive the receipts. The exchange rate is the official euro exchange rate of the European Central Bank or the exchange rate of the Deutsche Bundesbank. If the insured person proves by means of a bank receipt that they purchased the foreign currency at a higher price, this rate shall apply.
The costs will be paid to the insured person. They must transfer the money to the doctor or hospital by the deadline indicated on the bill.
The MAWISTA Student Pro tariff offers a so-called entitlement to benefits. This means that you can continue to be a private full health insurance member even once your tariff has expired. The entitlement to benefits means you can enjoy particularly favourable conditions without having to undergo a new health checkup.
