Germany’s asylum seeker healthcare schema. After first arrival, asylum seekers can receive emergency care at any time, and receive screening at centralized reception centers. During this initial period up to 12 weeks, asylum seekers have State insurance. After 3 months, limited access is granted and insurance is provided by the municipality. This lasts up to 15 months, after which full access is possible. Permission to base this figure on a similar one previously published was granted by the author S. Bauhoff [22]
