  1. John Gunn & Partner - Independent insurance broker for expats

    Today I received confirmation from TK that I am enrolled with them!  This is all thanks to the help of John G who clearly explained the situation and what I would need to do, collected all my documents from me, chatted with me via what's app while I was in the UK, and then submitted everything to TK for me.  I hadn't dared be too hopeful because of everything others have posted on here about trying to get into public health insurance over 55.  It was impossible for me when I first tried to move to Germany in 2017, because I am a UK citizen who had been living in the USA, and therefore (being over 55) I wasn't eligible.  So then I moved back to the UK from December 2017 to March 2019.  I had to prove I had been living in the UK and registered with the NHS for one year, which I did by way of a GP registration letter, and a combination of various council tax bills, other utility bills, work contract, rental contract, etc. etc. John collected all these from me and sent them to TK along with my application.  TK were a bit hopeless with their initial communications, but John continued to follow up for me, calling them, pushing them, asking to speak to a supervisor on two occasions, and the end result of all of this is that four weeks after arriving in Germany, I am now enrolled in TK.  I also bought personal liability insurance through John which was very reasonable and helps me sleep better at night.  My insurance needs are now all taken care of here in Germany, thanks so much John, for taking my case on, and, more importantly, for succeeding!
