Electronic health card for refugees

Refugees can receive an electronic health card (eGK) within the first 15 months of their admission.

As before, the scope of benefits is governed by the Asylum Seeker Benefits Act. In the first 15 months, this includes:

  • medical treatment of acute illnesses and pain conditions,
  • the provision of protective vaccinations in accordance with the benefits of statutory health insurance and medically required preventive examinations, and
  • other benefits, provided that they are essential to ensure health or to meet the special needs of children (discretionary benefit).
