Trying to implement a new urban legend?

Every German is obliged to have a health insurance according to law ( § 193 III VVG = "Versicherungsvertragsgesetz"). In 2011 there were only around 0.2% of all Germans without a insurance (see https://www.destatis.de/DE/PresseService/Presse/Pressemitteilungen/2012/08/PD12_285_122.html;jsessionid=ABD2F01F9C8973769A1A73A96D1E0C41.cae2). And even if you have no insurance at all every hospital will help you in case of danger.
