Method of payment
Payment terms for your health insurance policy with AOK
AOK will take your health insurance payment from your bank account via direct debit. You will need to issue us with a direct debit instruction. Your other option is to pay for an entire semester upfront.
|Method of payment||Conditions|
|Direct debit||Please issue us with a direct debit instruction. We will then take your health insurance payment from your account every month.|
|Bank transfer||If you do not issue us with a direct debit instruction for your bank account, you will need to pay for your health insurance for an entire semester upfront.|
The health insurance contribution must be paid for the whole semester, i.e. also during the holidays. This applies even if you do not stay in Germany.
The health insurance fund debits the contribution from the account you have stated each month. The payment is due on the 15th of the month for the previous month. Example: the October payment is due on 15 November.
If your account does not have sufficient funds to cover the amount due, your health insurance may be terminated. Please consider that this leads to a loss of your matriculation. The health insurance fund is obliged to inform the university/college if you have not paid towards your health insurance. To avoid being unregistered, arrears must be paid without delay.
