Update regarding the coronavirus
We are all faced with the great challenge of slowing down the spread of the coronavirus. Please adhere to hygiene directives such as washing your hands thoroughly, sneezing into tissues and disposing of them immediately or sneezing into the crook of your arm instead of into the palms of your hands. And please also follow the recommendations from scientists and researchers to reduce social contact to the necessary minimum. If you suspect you have been infected or feel ill, please stay at home and follow the information provided by your health authorities.
This will protect high-risk groups and relieve the burden on the healthcare system.
You can find information in English from the German Federal Ministry of Health and from the Robert Koch Institute here.
Please note that your AOK health insurance is only active while you are officially enrolled at a German college or university.
For questions about your AOK health insurance you can also call us or fill out a contact form.
