Fritz Horst MelsheimerEberhard Sautter, Chairman of the Board of Directors of the HanseMerkur Insurance Group

“As an innovative private health insurance corporation, we have been offering top-ranking insurance rates to cover reimbursement of the costs of supplementary medicine since 1992. All therapeutic measures in the field of traditional Chinese medicine are covered. We expect that the scientific study of this far-eastern art of healing will contribute to a definition of transparent quality standards for TCM medicine in Germany. The customers of HanseMerkur will profit in two ways from this: In addition to high-quality classical western medicine they will also receive access to optimal and efficient natural remedies.”

Prof. Dr. Martin ZeitzProf. Dr Burkhard Göke, Medical Director and Chairman of the Board of the University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf (UKE)

“Situated on the campus of our University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf (UKE), the HanseMerkur Center for Traditional Chinese Medicine is the only institute in Germany to offer TCM research, treatment and teaching under one roof. In cooperation with scientists and doctors at the UKE, the center researches Traditional Chinese Medicine’s mechanisms of action and their significance for clinical treatment. TCM is also incorporated into our medical students’ teaching. Chinese Medicine is an important research field for a western teaching hospital such as the UKE, for it is apparent that the demand for treatment in the TCM center is steadily increasing.”
