TK it's not a private
, but a public
health insurance company. It is therefore one of the statutory health insurers in Germany, whose benefits and contribution rates are regulated by the state. An important difference is that anyone who is compulsorily insured in Germany can take out health insurance with Techniker. The insurer is not allowed to refuse anyone.
