Comparison of the private health insurance scheme in Germany and the United States

Given the threats such as swine flu, many people are glad to be insured. That enables them to see a doctor whenever they want. Normally, the treatment is at no charge.

Methods of treatment and drugs become more efficient and more expensive. Therefore, it is irresponsible to be not insured. In the case of illness the costs increase and the patient won’t be able to bear the costs in the long run.
