What you need to know about governmental health insurance

In Germany, everyone who starts to work is legally obligated to obtain health insurance. As an employee, you enjoy special social security protection in Germany, where the employer usually pays half of the employee’s monthly health insurance contributions. These contributions generally depend on the amount of your salary and are shown on all your monthly payslips. In general, health insurance companies charge the same basic rate of 14.6 %. On top of that, there is an individual additional contribution to the respective health insurance company which is individually defined by the insurer. Please note that incoming or travel health insurance is not accepted as they don’t contribute to the required long-term nursing care insurance (Pflegepflichtversicherung).
