Abroad

Overseas protection

With SBK you're on the safe side all over the world – for example, if you spend your holidays in your home country. In the case of travels to EU or "treaty countries" you are protected by the European health insurance card. Your family members enjoy the same coverage via the family insurance.

In non-EU countries such as USA, China or India you are not entitled to benefits by statutory health insurances. In this case we recommend to take out a private travel health insurance. With our cooperation partner, ERGO-Direkt-Versicherung, you will benefit from an attractive 10 % discount. This will cover any medical requirements during your stay abroad up to eight weeks – also in the case of a return transport to Germany.

Overseas Consulting

The SBK Overseas Consulting offers an additional team of experts for you to call and ask health and social insurance-related questions. Upon request your personal client advisor will prepare an information package for your overseas travels comprising information on recommended vaccinations, important contacts and proposal for useful medication to take with you.

More SBK advantages:

  • You will be partially reimbursed for costs incurred for travel vaccinations
  • The SBK Overseas Health Helpline experts will provide medical assistance day and night and will, for example, also inform you about German or English language specialists and hospitals at your destination
