Germany: Merkel creates a €1 Bn shortfall in health services by 2017 due to Muslim migrant policy

Huge influx of migrants is blamed for an expected ONE BILLION EURO shortfall in the German health service by 2017

  • Germany’s health service is facing a massive deficit due to migrant costs
  • It is unable to cope with treatment required for its ballooning population
  • By 2017, the health service is expected to face a one billion euro shortfall

The German health service is facing a billion-euro deficit as it struggles to cope with the influx of more than a million asylum seekers who arrived last year.

Although the German government pays a lump sum to the country’s health insurance companies every time they treat an asylum seeker, this apparently does not even cover half the cost.

Currently the amount is £70 per person, but research over costs of treating asylum seekers in Hamburg has revealed it needs to be at least between £140 and £155.

The deficit means that per refugee there is a deficit of around £78 a month, which is £935 per year.

For every 100,000 asylum seekers, this means a shortfall of £93million per year.

According to the latest figures, this year alone the total deficit is expected to be several hundred million euros and by next year and it will rise to over £779million as more become eligible for health service treatment.

If the country’s finance minister Wolfgang Schauble refuses to use taxpayer money to bail out the health service, it will mean the deficit needs to be paid by German workers through their health insurance contributions.

The government currently pays £10.9billion a year to the health service, and in 2017 it will be £11.2billion.

Asylum seekers which come into the country have to wait 15 months and then get the same rights to health service treatment as a German worker.

Because asylum seekers who usually do not speak German or have any skills are believed to be unlikely to work in Germany, they will also end up taking unemployment benefits known as Hartz IV.

That means that the money for their health insurance will also be paid by the government.

  2. I read that Ms. Merkel’s father is a minister. Though many of us agree with the Christian ideal of compassion, this must be balanced with common sense and a pragmatic approach. It is not feasible for Europe to continue hosting hundreds of thousands of migrants, some of whom have no legitimate passports, many of whom appear now to be in Europe simply to take advantage of its overly generous welfare system.

    And as often happens, it is the German taxpayers and the residents of other European countries which will pay an exceedingly high cost, not only for their health care needs (which undoubtedly includes costs of covering their pregnancies and births). It is ironic that Merkel herself said that Europe will be experiencing big changes in the decades to come, as if she somehow does not comprehend that it has been her open door ‘come one, come all’ policies which have led to this explosion of migrants.

    I have only read about the initial stages of this stampede in one publication, I think the Guardian, talking about what started as a small numbers of migrants coming into Europe grew exponentially when the word got out in the Muslim world via social media, like Facebook, Twitter, and the like.
