Apply for an electronic health card for refugees


Refugees can also receive an electronic health card (eGK) in the first 15 months after their admission.

As before, the scope of benefits is based on the Asylum Seekers Benefits Act. In the first 15 months, this includes

  • Medical treatment for acute illnesses and pain conditions,
  • the provision of vaccinations in accordance with the benefits of statutory health insurance and medically necessary check-ups and
  • other services, insofar as these are essential to safeguard health or to cover the special needs of children (discretionary benefit).

Refugees have left the initial reception centers and have been assigned to a municipality.

  • Registration form for health care
  • a photograph

There are no costs for the refugees for the card.

Maximum duration of the eGK for refugees:

A corresponding field "Insurance until date" is provided on the eHC, which allows the card to be limited in time. The eHC for refugees can be limited to the first 15 months of residence.

The local authority registers the refugees with the relevant health insurance fund. This sends the eGK to the refugees. Until then, the refugees receive a provisional billing slip for medical and dental care from the health insurance company. This will be issued to the refugees by the local authorities.
