Finding the right health insurance for your time in Germany is not easy, since there are a lot of rules and regulations to follow. What kind of insurance do I need in Germany? Do I need private or compulsory public health insurance? Is my family covered? Here at DR-WALTER Public Health, we offer advice on these and many other issues.
Some people become subject to compulsory insurance when they start working and can there-fore obtain compulsory public health insurance. Others do not have the opportunity to receive compulsory insurance. If you are not sure which of these groups of people you belong to: Let us advise you (German, English, Chinese)!
At provisit.com, we offer health insurance for many different types of travel, as well as other ways to cover your stay abroad.
Together with Techniker Krankenkasse (TK), one of the largest health insurers in Germany, we have developed Public Health, the consulting service for compulsory health insurance.
Techniker Krankenkasse (TK) is the largest compulsory health insurance company in Germany and is particularly popular with visiting foreign nationals in Germany. TK offers 24/7 English-language customer support and its free Guide to Finding a Doctor (German) to help members find the right doctor in their area.
