"The electronic health card makes it easy to access the doctor."
Easy and affordable - Kibreab Gebru is satisfied with the German health insurance system.
When Kibreab Gebru came to Germany to study, he didn't know how health insurance works. In his home country of Ethiopia you have to pay the doctor yourself. And if you don't have enough money, you don't get treated. Now living in Bremen he's is insured with TK. He's very happy with how easy and affordable it is to get medical treatment - especially with the electronic health card. You only have to hand the card to your doctors and therapists and they can settle the fees for their services with the health insurance fund - that's it.
