By law, every resident of Germany must have health insurance. There are many statutory and private health insurances to choose from. Simply enter the search term “Krankenkasse” in a search engine in your web browser for an exhaustive list. Please compare the benefits and contribution fees of the various health insurance companies. You can apply for health insurance through your employer, at the government employment office (Agentur für Arbeit), at the Jobcenter, or directly at the health insurance company office. If you are married, your spouse and dependents can be insured on your policy (family health insurance).
