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 also depends on the Asylum Seeker Benefits Act. This includes in the first 15 months:

  • the medical treatment of acute diseases and pain conditions,
  • the provision of vaccinations in accordance with the benefits of the statutory health insurance and medically required preventive examinations, and
  • other services, provided that they are essential to safeguarding health or to meet the special needs of children (discretionary service).

The municipality reports the refugees to the responsible health insurance fund. The eGK sends this to the refugees. Until then, the refugees will receive a provisional billing certificate from the health insurance fund for medical and dental care. This is handed over to the refugees by the municipalities.

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

  • Registration form for health care
  • a photo

There is no cost for the card for the refugees.

Maximum duration of the eGK for refugees:

The eGK provides for a corresponding field "Insurance to date", which allows a time limit for the card. The eGK for refugees may be limited for the first 15 months of residence.
