Pricing of health insurance: Since the statutory health insurance payments are based on the monthly gross income, there are no large differences between different insurance providers. The insured always pays about 15% of the monthly gross income. For private health insurances, the costs vary widely between 400 and 800 EUR per month dependending on the coverage. Hence, it requires some research to find the right private health insurance. In case you need more help, feel free to contact the IEO for company contacts.
