I am Frank from Germany, living in Mani for over 30 years. I have a story for you which is as true as it is unbelievable.
3 years ago, I went to Sparti General Hospital for a little operation. Everything went fine, I was looked after, no complaints and NO fakelaki - maybe because my private doctor was good friends with the surgeon... I had to stay in hospital for 3 days.
I have no general health insurance, but a private one for hospital. For the 3 days a paid 234 € cash to the hospital, including the operation and everything.
