Health Insurance

Due to the Austrian accreditation of Webster University, our students are entitled to be insured by the public health insurance agency Oesterreichische Gesundheitskasse (OeGK) at the monthly amount of EUR 61.43 for students.

Make sure that you have either private or travel health insurance to cover you until at least the end of your first month at Webster, as one of the documents required to apply for Austrian insurance will only be available in the third week of the term. You will need to apply for your Austrian health insurance before your private insurance expires.*

The following items should be submitted in person at the OeGK:

  • OeGK health insurance application form and list of items needed
  • Meldezettel or Residence Registration from Vienna (if you are applying from outside of Vienna but inside of Austria, then you must go to that state specific Gebietskrankenkasse apply there using the Meldezettel from that federal state)
  • Certification of enrollment (Inskribtionsbestätigung) - available upon request from the Academic Services Office
  • Proof of performance (Studienerfolgsnachweis) for current students - please request this a week before your appointment at the Front Desk; this document is only available if you have already completed at least one Webster Vienna course)

The main office of the OeGK in Vienna is located at:
Wienerbergstrasse 15-19
1100 Vienna
