TikTok user @lasaventurasdealba, a Spanish woman who lives in Germany, explains what health care is like in that country and many in Spain appreciate the care they receive here.
“In Spain it’s very good,” he began by warning before listing: “If you go to the doctor with a fever of 40, he tells you to drink a lot of tea. Here you can’t go to the physiotherapist unless the family The doctor told you that. The physiotherapist also “It’s covered by your health insurance to a certain extent. For example, six sessions of 20 minutes each cost me 25 euros. And, on the other hand, six sessions with a private physiotherapist cost me 300 euros.”
And he continues: “Every time you go to the pharmacy with your red prescription you have to pay at least five euros. If it’s a box of paracetamol, five euros. If it’s a cream for skin infection, five euros. Medicines are free up to 18 years old free,” he said.
In addition, he regretted that “most of the doctors’ hours are from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. and there are some that open in the afternoon from 3:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. in the afternoon, from 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm, but not every day.”
“Outpatient clinics are unknown here. Doctors open outpatient clinics in small apartments. And there is no social security as such, every person is obliged to have public medical insurance you pay based on your salary and take it out of your salary.”, he pointed out while revealing that he, for example, pays 270 euros per month.
“If you don’t take leave and don’t use any insurance that year, I don’t know if part or all of it will be returned to you,” he added before complaining that he also found a lot. of malpractice by German doctors. Before continuing, he said he was diagnosed with a fracture when all he had was a sprain.
“If you stay in the hospital you have to pay 10 euros a night with a maximum of 280 euros a month. And family members can’t stay with you, it’s forbidden to sleep in the hospital, which I find fatal. others in children and even 7 or 8 years old, no more,” he concluded.
