Extend Your Coverage – Upgrade Your Health Insurance

Especially in times of a health crisis like the one we are currently experiencing, it is important to have full insurance coverage. Health insurance protects you against high costs arising from an unexpected illness or accident. The MAWISTA Student insurance included in the Fintiba Plus package only covers the basic medical services. Upgrading to MAWISTA Student Comfort extends your coverage – so compare and check now!

Vaccinations (e.g. COVID-19, flu, FSME, HPV)
Dental care support
No deductible 

The Corona pandemic has triggered many students to review their own requirements and current coverage of their health insurance. Many want to ensure that they take care of the relevant eventualities during their stay in Germany. This entails planning how to care for vaccinations against COVID-19.

In general, you do not have to pay for the COVID-19 vaccination. It is free of charge for the general public – regardless of whether and how you are insured and where you get vaccinated. The federal government procures, distributes and finances all vaccines used in Germany – including in doctors’ surgeries.

More information can be found in our Blog article “All you need to know about the COVID-19 vaccination in Germany”.
