Who is eligible for coverage?
International health insurance coverage Care Visa Protect is tailored to the needs of foreign guests and visitors who enter the European Union (EU) and the Schengen states with a visa. Care Visa Protect coverage for foreign nationals can be taken out up to the insured person’s 75th birthday (not older than 74 years old) and has a maximum duration of coverage of 92 days.
What are the insurance benefits?
The benefits cover outpatient, inpatient and dental treatment by all licensed physicians worldwide at the normal local fee rates. The insurance complies with all the requirements for a Schengen visa stipulated by Regulation (EC) No. 810/2009 of the European Parliament and the Council of the European Union on July 13, 2009. Care Visa Protect international health insurance also covers the host, in particular, against most financial risks of a formal obligation (Verpflichtungserklärung). Care Visa Protect in combination with Care Protector accident/liability coverage reduces significantly the remaining risks of a formal obligation.
What does the insurance cost?
The premium for the Care Visa Protect insurance depends on the duration of coverage selected and the age of the insured person. For those individuals between 0 and 64 years old, the total premium for 30 days, for example, amounts to a one-time sum of €25.50.
You can take out your international health insurance coverage directly online and, after your application has been approved, you will receive immediate confirmation per e-mail within a few minutes including all the documents you need to apply for your visa.
In addition to your international health insurance coverage, we also recommend that you take out a "Care Protector" accident and liability insurance policy. You can do this quite easily – for a premium starting at just €2.00 per month – along with your health insurance request under Online application. The liability insurance protects you against claims for damages from third parties. Accident insurance protects you against the financial consequences of a decline in your ability to work due to disability or death following an accident.
