PUBLIC HEALTH INSURANCE

Health insurance is compulsory for the whole population in Germany.

The public health insurance is based on the principle of solidarity to ensure that everybody is able to access health care services. German citizens trust their state health system: about 85% of the German population is insured under the GKV (national health system).

PRIVATE HEALTH INSURANCE

Private health insurance is becoming increasingly popular in Germany, largely due to the fact that many state health services have been cut or downgraded.

It is often more cost effective to take out private health insurance as private policies provide more comprehensive cover and better value.
