Stay in Sweden...much more social country than Germany (where you get free Autobahn but no free healthcare...it tells you a lot about the priorities of people here).

 

There are no such things as free lunches..

Health insurance is paid by taxes.. in Germany it is paid by the employees/employers.

German doctors go to Sweden, because they have a better work/life balance...at the cost of the patients?

I've read enough horror stories about the German health insurances (including the public ones) to know that the current system in Germany is a mess...expensive, fragmented, complicated, in some cases leaving people without any coverage.

Health shouldn't be something that you "insure", like an house, a car or your mobile phone.

 

I'd rather have my tax money spent on funding a system like the NHS or the Swedish one (a basic, no-frills free at the point of consumption one, with checks to avoid abuses), than pay for the maintenance of Autobahns for frustrated BMW and Porsche owners.

You shouldn’t believe everything you’ve read. We’re both publicly insured by choice and two pregnancies and a lot of hospital visits and consultations (with two children it adds up) later I’m quite happy with everything and the costs to my pocket are in total approximately 0. The public health insurance in Germany is like a Vollkaskoversicherung.
