There are three main categories we can place UK expats into: salaried employees; freelancers; and jobseekers.
1. Salaried employees
If you've got a full-time job, then you'll be able to apply for public health insurance using your employer information and job contract. You can do this in just a few minutes using our free public signup platform.
If you're self-employed, then things are a little different. You'll need to prove that you've had NHS coverage. There are two steps to the process:
1. Get your application started through the Feather signup platform.
2. Download and complete this letter template. Your GP in the UK will have to fill it out to verify your NHS coverage.
Once you have the signed letter, forward it to your contact at Feather or to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Or perhaps you've moved to Germany looking for a job, but haven't found the perfect position just yet. If you have no income source, then there are some extra hoops to jump through when signing up for public health insurance—but we can guide you through the process.
Just as for freelancers, you will need to prove your coverage under the NHS, so use our letter template to get a signed confirmation from your GP in the UK. Then get in touch with Feather to kick off your application.
