  1. What made you laugh today?

    Just checked my online banking thingy. There's a debit for a Kartenzahlung of -0,07 Cent! What the hell was that?😂

  4. What made you smile today? 80 yard goal in Ireland!
  5. All international insurances will accept you but exclude your pre-existing conditions.  What is your current visa situation? How long is your visa valid for? Or are you officially a tourist? Work: as an American , you need a specific skill  to get an employee job- one an EU citizen couldn't. It is not THAT easy...   Basistarif- no specific deductible- though that depends on the treatment/ doctor etc. But don't even try to waste your time on that.   International insurance: the provider must be able to offer you support documents: in particular something called a Bescheinigung ( in English and German ), which states your tariff, price and frequency of payment, deductible and valid from ... till ... This is what you show the Ausländeramt for their approval.   This is for non-employees.

  10. Good morning, snotnose!  Some points: what do you mean by " student?" University student or eg learning German at a language school? The Basistarif is NOT a realistic option. Apart from the fact that it costs over 800 euros a month, try getting into it as an American with no insurance history in Germany! You would need a good and expensive lawyer! The insurers would fight tooth and nail not to let you in.   Another way to look at it- how much a month does your current medication cost? Less than 800 euros a month?   What is your residence status? If you are allowed to work and actually get an employee job earning OVER 450 euros a month, then you can and must join public insurance with no medical declaration required. That would be perfect. If your later status changes, it doesn't matter. You could stay in public insurance.   If not allowed to work- your best bet would be a legally acceptable private international insurance ( not expensive at your age ) and by dint of which you would have some change left over to pay for your current medication. ( Pre-existing conditions would be excluded).
  11. Odd news Indian couple sue their son for not giving them a grandchild to play with so far. ( I think I've just about heard everything in my life now. Bloody hell!)...
