Mandatory health insurance enacted

van Ginneken E, Busse R
Health Policy Monitor, May 2009




The 2007 “Act to Strengthen Competition in Statutory Health Insurance (SHI)” obliges all residents to take out health insurance, effective from 2007 for sickness funds and from January 2009 for private insurers. Although the number of uninsured persons in Germany is small compared to other countries, it has been rising over the last decade. Both sickness funds and private insurers now have to accept all eligible persons. Private insurers will have to offer a basic benefit package.
