For the past 45 years Germany has had two health care systems: one in the former Federal Republic of Germany and one in the
former German Democratic Republic. The system in the Federal Republic was undergoing some important reforms when German reunification
took place in October 1990. Now the system in eastern Germany is undergoing a major transformation to bring it more into line
with that in western Germany.
