We asked expats in Germany if they have access to public healthcare in Germany. And, if they do have access, what is it like. They wrote...

"Yes, as a foreigner living in Germany, you will have access to public healthcare. The public healthcare system in Germany is known for its high quality and is funded by taxes. It is available to all residents, regardless of nationality, and covers a wide range of services, including preventive care, hospital stays, and specialist care. The cost of care is usually quite low, and in some cases, it may even be free," explained one expat living in Germany.
