The term “insurance provider” is used to describe companies that offer insurance products and policies
The world of German health insurance is divided into public (statutory) and private health insurance systems. Each system includes a range of insurance providers offering different tariffs and different levels of cover.
There are currently around 110 public (statutory) health insurance providers in Germany as well as 45 private health insurance providers. It is up to you to find a provider and a tariff offering the most suitable cover for your needs and financial circumstances.
Note: The word “provider” also appears in the term “healthcare provider”, which is used to describe an institution or person who administers treatment or care.
