Standard model – Free choice of doctors

The standard model is the statutory standard version of mandatory basic insurance. It is offered by all health insurance companies. The benefits covered under basic insurance are set out in the Health Insurance Act (KVG). This is why all benefits under any insurance model are identical with all health insurance companies. As the standard model grants free choice of doctors, it is the most expensive option compared to the alternative insurance models.

Pros:

  • Free choice of doctors at all times
  • You can go to a specialist directly
