If you want to insure yourself against loss of income, you can choose the statutory sickness benefit starting from the 7th week and pay the general contribution rate. You can find more information on sickness benefit at www.aok.de.
If you choose a health insurance with entitlement to statutory sickness benefit, you can take out a sickness benefit optional tariff from AOK as an individual supplement. You can find information on optional tariffs at www.aok.de.

If you earn less than EUR 5.362,50 (gross) per month, you become a member covered by compulsory insurance.
