However, it may happen that not all doctors in Germany accept the card. In addition, it may happen that the coverage offered by your health card in your country of origin is not the same as in Germany. In this case, you would have to take care of the additional payments. Therefore, it is always advisable to take out cheap private health insurance for the time you are in Germany and to avoid any unforeseen additional payments.
