Can I Go To A Doctor In Germany Without Insurance?
Yes, it is possible to visit a doctor in Germany even if you do not have insurance. However, you will be required to pay for the medical services you receive from your own pocket. Medical expenses in Germany can be quite costly, and even basic services can quickly add up if you do not have insurance.
For travelers who are not covered by either travel insurance or a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC), we strongly advise taking out travel insurance to cover any potential medical expenses before embarking on your trip to Germany. This will ensure that you can access medical care whenever you require it and avoid the possibility of facing exorbitant medical bills at the end of your trip.
Our Recommendation for Foreign Students, Tourists and Ex-Pats:
It is also recommended to carry a copy of your passport and travel insurance policy, as well as a list of any medications you may be taking in case you need to see a doctor during your stay in Germany.
