Mandatory SHI for public officials lowers burden on public-sector budgets

Including privately insured civil servants in the statutory health insurance (GKV) would lower the burden on national and federal public-sector budgets by approximately 60 billion euros by 2030. However, not all federal states would see an improvement. This system change would generate an additional income for the GKV, which would make possible a reduction of contributions of up to 0.34 percent.
