The health care system is great and the fact that regardless of your income, health insurance is available to you makes the system even more exceptional. German residents don’t have to be reluctant to go to the doctor or hospital when something is wrong and thus can lead a healthier lifestyle, receiving the care they need when they need it. It is however, important to note that health insurance isn’t a choice in Germany, you need to be covered.
