Before cancelling you expat health insurance policy, please keep in mind that you're legally required to have health insurance when living in Germany. Except in rare cases, living in Germany without health insurance is illegal.

If you'll continue living in Germany, to cancel your expat health insurance policy, you'll need to have another kind of health insurance. This may be a public health insurance policy through one of the Krankenkassen or a private health insurance plan. Please use our recommendation tool to determine which options you're eligible for. You can also feel free to contact us; we can help you determine what your options are and assist you in upgrading your expat insurance to full public or private insurance.

How to cancel

You are able to cancel whenever you need, however, be aware...for example, if you sign up with a start date on the 1st, you have to cancel before the 1st of the next month to avoid being charged and covered for an additional month.
