Private International Health Insurance

The rise of international health insurance

International providers are quickly becoming a popular solution to protect you and your family against expensive health care costs that some countries are experiencing. Not only are nowadays insurers able to tailor their plans to meet legal requirements of many nations, hence acceptance is guaranteed/ VISA’s are issued, but the same plans also provide full medical cover whilst abroad, whether on holiday or travelling the world on business.

Located in Germany, yet offering our health insurance services on a global stage, we have the means and partners to provide the medical insurance product that suits your situation and expectations at any point in time.

Germany and its tripping hazards - a very special market

All German residents are obliged to be in possession of a health insurance plan that meets the requirements of their legislation and this must be done shortly after the person's official arriving. There are many German products available, however in terms of pricing, people tend to be appalled, thus seek for alternatives and find international health solutions.


All medical insurance solutions we offer to German residents are approved and accepted!


Not having lived in Germany for more than 60 months at a stretch, it is everybody's right to insure themselves with an international company! The insurer or its underwriter has to be registered with the German Federal Financial Supervisory Authority (BaFin) and their plans must fulfil the legal requirements of the lawgiver to receive a initial or renewal VISA from the Foreigners' Office (Ausländerbehörde).

International versus German Health Insurance

Unfortuantely clients often find themself in a pickle when repeatively receiving denial letters on sending in a proposal for German private health insurance.
This is without doubt very frustrating and extremly costly in every aspect.
An international health insurance plan is then not only the last but luckily a more inexpensive option and searching the web one will soon realise that there are many insurers and agents offering cover, advertising that insurance is provided in worldwide, thus suitable for Germany. Yet too often is this not the case and a pinch of scepticism must be allowed. What many advertisors fail to mention is that their products have not been approved by the German Financial Supervisory Authority (BaFin), thus are not qualified as a legally adequate substitute, therefore are classed as no more but medical travel insurance, accetped for short-stays in Germany.

German Long-Term-Care & International Medical Insurance

As a client of ERICON broker and holding a international medical insurance plan, you will have the opportunity to purchase mandatory German Long-Term-Care insurance ("Pflegepflichtversicherung").
The combination of both will put raises the level of over health insurance to the 'German standard', making one's stay in Germany 100% legitimate.
