Public health insurance companies offer health check-ups for their members starting at age 35. During these checks, your medical history is noted and a physical examination is performed. Furthermore, your cholesterol and blood sugar levels are determined and a urinalysis carried out. If desired and needed, you can upgrade this basic preventative care and screening with other medically appropriate examinations – “IGeL” tests ( “individual health services”) – since only private health insurance providers reimburse regular and comprehensive preventive examinations.
