The German Health Care System

Widely regarded as operating an excellent health care system that provides high quality care for all ages, Germany’s ‘Bismarck’ system is funded by independent health insurers. These insurers compete against each other for contributions from employers and employees alike. Since 2007, it has been mandatory for all expats to buy private health insurance from a registered insurer.

If you’re working in Germany, both you and your employer will pay into your health care insurance. But as a high-level expat earner, with an income of more than 4,000 Euros a month, you can opt out of state health insurance and take out your own private policy instead. Any policy must include everything your state insurance includes, such as cover for old age and chronic disease. This may well be a cheaper option for expats with high incomes, bringing with it all the benefits associated with private health care. We can help you to find the most cost-effective and comprehensive cover for yourself and your family.
