In the Federal Republic of Germany, the healthcare system established is designed to cover everyone living in Germany. This means that everyone has the obligation to have a health insurance based on German regulations. Additionally, depending on each individual condition, some residents are eligible for the public healthcare system whereas others will need a private health insurance to comply with this general obligation.
The public healthcare system, also known as the governmental or statutory health insurance system (in German Gesetzliche Krankenversicherung or GKV) is managed by insurance companies, commonly referred as Krankenkassen in German, that manage your governmental health insurance. As one of these companies, DAK-Gesundheit offers you the best solutions for your health insurance needs.
