If you are in need of medical care while you are in Trier, you can find the most important addresses of doctors, pharmacies, hospitals and for emergencies here.
A distinction is made between general practitioners and specialists in Germany. As a general rule, you should first go to your general practitioner, who will refer you to a specialist doctor if necessary. Whenever you go to the doctor’s, you will need to present your health insurance card. If you are insured by a statutory health insurance company, they will cover all the costs of your visit to the doctor – you will only need to pay part of the costs of any medicine prescribed. If you have private health insurance you must first pay for any service but in most cases the health insurance provider will reimburse you.
If you feel ill or have typical Covid-19 symptoms (difficulties breathing, newly developed cough, fever or loss of smell or taste), immediately report to the health service in Trier. Even if your test was negative before but you do show sympoms now, contact a doctor or a Corona service point as soon as possible. Please do not go there in person but call first.
Generally when you feel ill, you contact a general practitioner (Hausarzt in Geman) and make an appointment via phone. Take your insurane documents such as your health insurance card or your confirmation documents of your health insurance (for private health insurance) with you to your doctor's appointment.
If you want to get tested, there is a Covid-19 test centre in Trier Petrisberg. The test costs 75€. You can register for an appointment on their website. Please bring your ID or passport with you.
Please also consider any recent information provided by the Federal Ministry of Health, the Federal State Government as well as by Trier City and Trier University on the situation and developments of Covid-19.
