You can rest assured: Should illness strike, you’ll be in the best of hands – quickly. Immediate treatment by a specialist, without detours or delay, is one of the central services private medical insurance provides. By affording you access to medical attention in private clinics, you’ll also benefit from the most technically advanced medical care.
Private health insurance is not limited to the pre-set catalogue of public health insurance. You personally select your services and can count on receiving the care you need for as long as you need it. Private insurance is uniquely positioned to offer a broader spectrum of treatments than public insurance, as it is not subjected to the same periodic reassessment and restriction of its coverage scope.
You choose the services you want your Getsafe private health insurance to include. You can determine whether your plan should cover the free choice of practitioners and specialists, single-patient hospital accommodation, comprehensive dental care covering dental prostheses, optometry reimbursements, psychotherapy, as well as complementary and wellbeing practitioners.
Salaried employees with an income that lies above the €64,350 compulsory insurance limit (Jahresarbeitsentgeltgrenze) for 2022, are free to opt out of the public insurance system and choose private health insurance. The public health insurance premiums for higher income individuals can reach up to €934 per month. Private insurance can provide greater quality of healthcare while saving you a considerable sum on monthly premiums. Making the change makes sense.
Are you self-employed or a freelancer? Then you get to decide for yourself whether you’d prefer public or private insurance. Private health insurance is especially sensible for those who seek higher quality insurance coverage and are self-employed when they are still young. If you’re slated to pay the highest premiums or want to swim free of demographic shifts, you should consider choosing PHI. You won’t just save money, but also accumulate reserves for old age and even earn sick day allowances. Also, you can flexibly adjust your monthly premiums to suit your budget by raising the excess, for example.
Over 94% of civil servants choose private health insurance. They do so for good reason: it’s state-subsidised by at least 50%. Special PHI tariffs even cover part of their excess, making private health insurance a very affordable option for those planning a career in civil service.
How does this compare with the option of public health insurance? Most states don’t subsidise public health insurance at all and public servants must pay the full premium. Of course, the more you earn, the higher your premiums get.
