Need advice on choosing private health insurance in Germany.
I'm an American moving to Berlin for at least three months, and there's a good chance I will wind up applying for a visa and staying longer.
1. Where can I buy health insurance while I'm there? What are my options in terms of coverage levels, and roughly how much should I expect to pay? I'm a healthy 28-year-old male with no preexisting conditions. I saw one company, DKV, mentioned in a previous AskMeFi question, but the "English" link on their website
doesn't seem to work, and I can't work out how to find quotes or sign up.
2. My googling so far turns up different products for people staying more/less than six months, a year, etc. Ideally I would like to get something on a month-to-month basis that I can just keep paying for indefinitely if I stay. Is this possible?
3. Do I also need this "third party liability insurance" or anything else mentioned here
I won't be working there so I can't just let my company handle it. I will be taking a full-time German course at the Goethe-Institut for 8 weeks (does this qualify me for student insurance rates?) and if I stay longer I'll probably apply to grad school there.
Thanks in advance for any info and/or advice...
