Supplementary health insurance in Germany (Zusatzkrankenversicherung) allows individuals with statutory health insurance (GKV) to take out additional insurance and, depending on your tariff, receive health care as individuals with private health insurance.
With supplementary health insurance, it is possible to be treated in a hospital or a private clinic like a patient with private health insurance, depending on your tariff. There are generally 3 types of supplementary health insurance in Germany:
1) Supplementary dental health insurance
2) Supplementary child health insurance
3) Supplementary hospital health insurance
By taking out supplementary dental health insurance, you make a significant contribution to dental health and dental protection. For example, you will receive free dental cleanings, as well as cover cost gaps for expensive prostheses such as implants or ceramic crowns.
Supplementary children health insurance includes the most important insurance benefits for children and adolescents: at the doctor, dentist, alternative practitioner or hospital. Depending on the tariff, even a daily hospital allowance and additional long-term care insurance are included. For example, especially for children, orthodontic treatment is also covered, depending on the tariff.
With supplementary hospital health insurance, you can choose to be treated by the chief physician instead of a doctor on call. Depending on the tariff, you are entitled to a single or twin room in the hospital and additional optional services.
Sample coverages above represent supplementary health insurance for expats in Germany and varies depending on the insurance company and tariff type. The applicable coverage is specified in your insurance tariff.
