It is no surprise that more and more people are going to Germany for the treatment. This country invests immense funds in the development of medicine. Germany ranks third in the world among the countries with the highest life expectancy and this is a direct merit of the country’s healthcare system.


The cost of treatment in Germany depends on many factors. These include: 

  • Your diagnosis;
  • List of necessary diagnostic and treatment procedures;
  • Duration of the hospital stay;
  • Presence of some concomitant pathology, which also requires treatment;
  • Status of the attending physician;
  • Number of medical professionals involved in the therapeutic or diagnostic process;
  • Comfort level of the patient room;
  • Accompanying the person and the need for his/her accommodation in the patient room.


The list below shows an estimated cost of treatment of different diseases. It is preliminary. To find out the exact price for each procedure or for the treatment of a particular disease, you can use the search form on our website
























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 difference in price 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 the whole course of treatment 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 a 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 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 the developing countries, however the quality of treatment is very different.
