The Imperial Health Service or IHS is the publicly-funded freehealthcare system in the Holy Germanian Empire. The IHS provides healthcare to any resident in Holy Germania with all services free of charge and little or no charges.
The IHS provides the majority of healthcare in Holy Germania, including primary care, in-patient care, long-term healthcare, ophthalmology and dentistry. The Imperial Health Services Act 1948 came into effect on 5 July 1948. Private health care has continued parallel to the IHS, paid for largely by private insurance: it is used by about 8% of the population, generally as an add-on to IHS services.
