German health insurance in another EU country

4 posts in this topic

Hello everyone. I am doing psychotherapy, paid by AOK for several months now and I am considering becoming a student again. My studies would be in Netherlands or Belgium. When I leave Germany, I would still like to keep doing remote therapy with my current psychotherapist based in Berlin. I am not sure how the health insurance will then cover my treatment. Anyone has any idea about how this could potentially work?

 

Thanks

Will you be keeping your German residence? If not you´ll have a problem because AFAIK only pensioners can remain insured with German public health insurance. You could try to ask the https://www.dvka.de/ . They are in charge of dealing with German public insurance customers residing in other EU-countries. Maybe they will at least be able to point you into the right direction - i.e. their counterparts of your new country of residence.

Another category would be cross-border workers who reside in Switzerland and work in Germany.

They may elect to take out German health insurance to replace compulsory (and generally more expensive) Swiss health insurance.
