Information about the connection of Employment and Insurance:

Please note, that public health insurance due to a contract can affect your CEU health insurance plan since FeelSafe private insurance CANNOT be used with a valid Austrian State Health Care simultaneously. For any practical questions please visit our FAQ.
Furthermore, your insurance connected to your contract (assignment or employment) in Austria/Hungary could affect your insurance in your home country (especially in the EU!) so please check with the insurer/government if there are steps you need to take.
