How do I get health insurance in Germany?
In Germany the law states that host families are responsible for taking out an insurance policy for their au pair and also pay for it. Make sure you talk about your insurance coverage with your host family before signing your contract.
This policy should consist of:
- Health insurance - Accident insurance - Liability insurance Please read all paperwork provided to you by your host family very carefully and ask for it to be in English if you are having problems understanding everything. Any paperwork you sign needs to be understandable to you before giving your signature.
