  1. Fees do not depend on your age or your health status.
  2. Your Medical history doesn’t matter.
  3. All public health insurance companies offer the same basic benefits.
  4. You can insure your children and spouse for free of charge through the family insurance plan (if they have no income or only low income of their own).

  1. What about cost? Monthly or yearly premiums? Can it be covered with the monthly allowance of 720 euro that I will draw every month from my blocked account? If you shed light on this matter in details, will appreciate it. Thanks.
