Health insurance in Germany
The social system in Germany is among the strongest in the world. You and your family automatically enjoy basic protection to ensure you are covered in old age, in the event of illness or after an accident. It is based on a simple principle: Solidarity and self-responsibility. Everyone contributes financially as much as they can. In return insurants can rely on robust protection when they are in need of it.
For everyone: statutory health insurance.
Statutory health insurance is an important part of the social insurance system. A health insurance network throughout Germany makes sure you receive all necessary medical services to become or remain healthy. The costs incurred for medical treatment with a doctor or in a hospital will be settled directly with your health insurance. You are free to choose the health insurance that appeals to you. Your registration is completely independent of any medical examination, your age or your income.
