Refugees receive healthcare in accordance with the Asylum Seekers Benefits Act. Entitlement to healthcare for the first 15 months of their stay is set out in §§ 4 and 6 AsylbLG. Depending on the federal state and (partly) the municipality in question, refugees either receive a health insurance certificate, which is valid for three months, or an eHealth Card. After 15 months, they are admitted into the standard healthcare system. Often, medical consultations are also conducted in initial reception centers and during initial assessments. These are supplemented by a wide variety of very different forms of voluntary healthcare provision at the local level.
