Since 1 January 2022, doctors' practices have sent us the electronic Arbeitsunfähigkeitsbescheinigung [statement of fitness for work] digitally. This means we do not need any further proof from you. Should you receive a paper copy of this statement for submission to the health insurer, please send this to us. The easiest way to do this is via the TK-App: take a photo, upload, send, done. Alternatively, you can send this to us by post.

More details

The alternative: by post

You can also send the form to the following address (a street address is not required):

Techniker Krankenkasse
20908 Hamburg

Why not via e-mail?

Information about your health is subject to particularly stringent data protection requirements. An e-mail does not meet these requirements. It is like a postcard and can be read by anyone. With the TK-App we offer you a secure means of transmission.
