The TK eHealth card is your identification card when you visit a doctor. It makes it easier for you to utilise medical services in Germany and abroad. Simply present the handy chip card when you receive medical treatment by doctors, in hospitals or by approved therapists.
A tiny chip on the eHealth card stores insurance data such as your full name, date of birth, address and membership number. With the TK eHealth card, doctors and therapists can settle the fees for services with the health insurance fund.
As a security measure to protect against misuse, the TK eHealth card contains a photo for insurees aged 15 years and older and must be signed.
