The Austrian health care system is based on compulsory health insurance. Health insurance is a compulsory insurance which means that all employees and self-employed are covered by health insurance if the income exceeds the minimum income limit. Also unemployed and pensioners are subject to the statutory health insurance. Children are insured with their parents and exempt from contributions. The umbrella organisation of the 22 health insurances is the main association of social security institutions. The health insurance is primary financed by insurance contributions. Additional funds are collected through contributions to costs (deductible) of the insured persons.
