Get Private Health Insurance in Germany
Private health plans cover a wider choice of medical and dental treatment and generally provide broad geographical coverage. By having private health insurance you are considered a private patient and can expect a higher level of service from the medical profession. You may choose a private health insurance (Private Krankenversicherung or PKV) instead of the government health plan if your gross salary is higher than 60,750 Euros per year (2019 figures). Self-employed persons, German civil servants and those persons working part-time and earning less than 450 Euros per month are also eligible.
