When we asked expats in Germany if healthcare and health insurance are expensive in Germany, they wrote...

"Healthcare in Germany is generally considered to be of high quality and is relatively affordable. Most people in Germany are required to have health insurance, which is usually provided by a public health insurance provider. The cost of health insurance depends on the type of coverage and the individual's income, but it is generally affordable. In addition, there are private health insurance providers that offer more comprehensive coverage, but these plans tend to be more expensive," remarked another expat who made the move to Germany.
