I'm privately insured since I'm a civil servant in Germany, so I'm receiving all the med bills and pay them before I send them to my insurance company and get my refund.
Before the private insurance I wouldn't get any bill at all so I had no clue what treatments really cost.

Some examples:
Tooth Extraction - 46 Euro
Coloscopy and lab analysis of "materials" - 900 Euro
10 min talking to doctor - 20 Euro
Cavity filling - 150 Euro

Curious as to why you had to be privately insured in a country like Germany? 

I know some have private insurance here in the UK but it just means it's one for them to access health services faster as the public sector is naturally strained. However, Boris expanded spendings accelerated hiring of foreign doctors and nurses to unprecedent degrees, so in a decade or so (once those doctors finish their training), the private insurance will be less enticing? maybe. 

But yeah, curious to hear your take.
