Which screening tests are paid for by statutory health insurance funds in Germany?
In Germany, many screening tests and examinations are paid for by statutory health insurers. Along with general health check-ups for children and adults, there are some that are specifically for women or specifically for men. Before having a screening test or examination, the doctor will explain it to you in detail.
The aim of screening tests is to detect diseases or risk factors early on. This can be an advantage if treatment is more effective when started before symptoms have occurred.
