Abstract: This study examines structural differences in the subjective quality of health care in Germany using a newspaper survey. We find that there are significant differences between urban and rural areas as well as between public and private insurance. In rural areas, the provision of general practitioners, specialists and hospitals are considered as worse than in cities. In particular, public insured individuals asses the provision of specialized doctors and hospitals as lower than private insured and criticize long waiting times for appointments and lacking coverage of health care costs by the statutory health insurance.
