health insurance semester in Austria Health insurance for the semester in Austria. You definitely need health insurance for your semester in Austria. The German statutory health insurance funds only reimburse treatment costs within the EU at the level that would have been incurred in Germany. Outside the EU, no costs will be reimbursed. Also a return transport to Germany is not covered - neither from the EU nor from abroad. It is therefore worth taking out an additional international health insurance policy that covers treatment costs and return transport.
