German health system


The German Health Systeme can be challenging and confusing. Here are some general and helpful information:

  • The german health care system is considered very good.
  • Should you find yourself in need of medical treatment, your first step is to visit a general practitioner (Hausarzt). Click here to learn about finding a general practitioner.
  • If the general practitioner feels that a specialist is required, he or she will provide you with a referral. This document allows you to visit the specialist. 
  • In case of toothache, you are free to go directly to a dentist without a referral.
