Medical Assistance for Migrants without health insurance coverage in Germany

last update: March 2010

Undocumented migrants are excluded from the regular health system in Germany. Medical Aid Groups for Refugees offer practical medical assistance for refugees and migrants:


- who are afraid of visiting a doctor's practice because they don't have residency status or papers,
- whom, despite of owning valid papers, ‚Sozialamt’ refuses to cover the costs of health care,
- who, through the experience of torture, war or exile, need psychological support.

For an overview about their network visit: http://medibueros.org (until now mainly in german language!) On this Site you can also find a map with all Medical Aid Groups.

In their consulting hours they arrange appointments with doctors and psychologists who are prepared to attend refugees and migrants anonymously and for free. You can find them in several cities:
