Insurance and Assistance

All students being awarded an Erasmus Mundus scholarship are automatically covered free of charge by an insurance scheme against risks related to health, accidents, death, permanent invalidity and civil responsibility. When visiting a doctor students will need to pay the fees in advance and will be reimbursed after ending the bill and a claim form to the Lippmann insurance company:

www.ips-lippmann.nl

Any query with regard to the Lippmann insurance should be addressed to the following e-mail address: info(at)studentsinsured.com. The claim form is to be found here.

All other students not receiving this scholarship will need to close a medical insurance contract on their own costs. The prices vary in the different countries in Germany students currently pay around €80 a month, in Austria €50 and in Poland €10.

The contracts can be closed after the arrival at the universities with the support of the local co-ordinator. However we recommend the students to take out a (travelling) insurance for the first weeks of their stay.
