  • Accompanying children

Provisit Science is a substitutive private health insurance for visiting academics and visiting scientists in Germany (in accordance with section 146 Insurance Supervision Act (VAG), section 195 (3) German Insurance Contract Act (VVG)). It offers comprehensive health insurance coverage at an affordable price.

If you are a scholarship holder or visiting scientist receiving funding, whether from the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), the Max Planck Institute or another institution, Provisit Science is the right choice for you. However, health insurance is also excellent for scientists without funding.
As a private health insurance policyholder, you purchase insurance with or without long-term care insurance based on the requirements of your program, university, organization or immigration authority.
