Health insurance

Health insurance is mandatory in Germany. There is a large number of health insurers available. You can find a selection of health insurers online or in the phone book under the heading ‘Krankenkassen’ (health insurers).

You can register with the health insurer of your choice as follows:

  • Personal application
  • Via your employer
  • Via the Agentur für Arbeit/Jobcenter

If your spouse already has health insurance, you and your children (up to a certain age limit) can also be insured with the same insurer with family insurance.
