The basic insurance of the EGK health insurance fund

The compulsory health insurance is the basic insurance protection of the health insurance fund, its benefits are prescribed by law. In the Standard model (free choice of doctor), you are free to choose whether to consult your family doctor, a group practice (HMO) or a specialist first in the event of illness. In addition, the health insurance company offers two alternative models with which you can save premiums:

  • The EGK-Care model is a so-called ManagedCare family doctor model. In the event of illness, you first contact your family doctor, who then determines the further treatment.
  • In the EGK-TelCare model, you first contact the Medgate telemedical advice centre in the event of illness and receive an individual treatment plan.

Discounts through a higher annual deductible

If you choose the alternative basic insurance model Care or TelCare, you will save premiums. You can also reduce your insurance premium by paying a higher deductible. Adults can pay an annual deductible of up to 2,500 euros.
