As of January 01, 2022, the “Meldeverfahren der Krankenkassen (ESMV)” (engl.: health insurance notification procedure for students) will be changed to a purely electronic procedure and the University of Bremen is required by law to participate in it. Information on the ESMV can be found at https://www.gkv-datenaustausch.de/studenten_meldeverfahren/studenten_meldeverfahren.jsp (unfortunately only in German)
In the future, health insurance status and information about enrollment and withdrawal will be exchanged between universities and health insurance companies within the framework of the ESMV exclusively via a specially created, secure data connection.
Before you enroll, you must notify your health insurance company to have an insurance certificate sent. This certifies whether you are insured or not required to register. The certificate is an enrollment requirement and therefore must be submitted to the university by the health insurance companies prior to enrollment. A new insurance certificate must be submitted each time there is a change in university, health insurance company, or insurance status.
On this page you will find more detailed information about health insurance during your studies. More detailed information can also be obtained from the health insurance companies. You will find several on the university campus.
