  • Germany’s health-care system spends nearly half as much as the United States but still manages to cover 100% of its population through a mix of public and private insurance schemes. There are two different systems that residents can turn to for insurance in Germany: SHI, which stands for Statutory Health Insurance and PHI or Private Health Insurance.

    I still cant wrap my head around the fact that you guys have to pay for an ambulance. This is absurd.

    Being german I can‘t imagine what it must be like to think about money before calling for an ambulance. That’s totally nuts.

    I as a refugee came to Germany. At first I had no Job didn't know the language but still was insured and wasn't denied any health related care. Now for my health Insurance, I pay half from my work and the other half is paid by my employer. The system is not perfect but far better than most developed countries.

    The best thing about German health care is: You can call an ambulance anytime when you feel it is necessary without fearing to be bankrupt afterwards. It costs at maximum 10€ and rest is covered by the health insurance. Even if they send a helicopter (which they sometimes do in remote areas or if it is really urgent), you still pay 10€ maximum...

    I spent a night in a hospital in Germany, got my blood tested, had a MRI and done some other tests done on me. Two weeks later I get a bill. What did I have to pay? 10€.

    When you think your health system is good but in reality it's not the yellow from the egg then you have the salad.
