Why is it beneficial to undergo treatment in Germany?


In general, treatment in Germany is more expensive than in most developing countries.This is not surprising, because with better medical services always comes a higher price to pay.

However, the price difference is not as large as some patients think and this is why:

  • The price of a single diagnostic or treatment procedure in Germany is higher than in most developing countries. However, the cost of medical treatment in Germany cannot be much higher or even lower, because German doctors strictly comply with the protocols. They do not prescribe unnecessary tests, drugs, or medical manipulations.
  • Different hospitals in poorly developed healthcare systems usually offer completely different prices. In Germany, pricing in medicine is regulated by government agencies, namely the Federal Ministry of Health and the Federal Medical Association. In this country, you do not need to overpay only for great reputability or good geographical location of the medical center.
  • Some countries set one treatment price for their patients, but for medical tourists, the cost is escalated. It is not customary for Germany to increase treatment costs for foreign citizens. The country regulates all prices at the legislative level. They are the same for both local and foreign patients.
  • When you undergo treatment in your country, you can do so at a low treatment price. However, eventually, you will have more and more expenses. In Germany, everything is different. The initial price seems to be high, but it does not increase anymore. Moreover, you pay for the treatment with a margin of about 20% and this money will be refunded to you upon therapy completion. If you use the services of the Booking Health company, you will also have insurance against all unforeseen medical expenses with a total cost of up to 200,000 €.

Thus, the total cost of treatment in Germany is not much higher than the cost of therapeutic and diagnostic procedures in developing countries. However, the quality of treatment is very different.
