Exemption from compulsory insurance in the case of marginal employment

If you are in a marginally paid job (450-euro job/mini-job), you are exempt from insurance in this employment. You will then not have to pay any contributions for them. You must regulate your health insurance elsewhere. For example: family insurance through the spouse or parents Mini-job as a part-time job: the health insurance runs through the main occupation Mini-job for unemployment benefit II recipients: the Employment Agency may take over the health insurance

The exemption from compulsory health insurance exists only as long as the reason for the exemption lasts.
Your employer will register you after clarification of the insurance law facts. Your health insurance company will answer your questions.
