German health service "better than WHO ranking":

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

The German health service is "far better" than the WHO suggested by ranking it 25th in the world, says a recent report by the Fritz Beske institute for health system research (IGSF) in Kiel, Germany. Claims that it is too expensive are unfounded, the report suggests, because the large expenditure reflects the broad range of reimbursable procedures on offer. If health insurance fund members did not have to finance activities in addition to healthcare, the health service would be in a far better financial position, said IGSF director Fritz Beske.
