This morning we woke up early (5:55!)!  Had to catch a train to Hamburg. 

Our train ride was a little loud because of the drunk men....probably traveling somewhere in anticipation of the Germany-USA World Cup game tonight. 

Once we made it to Hamburg, we headed to Techniker Krankenkasse (TK), Germany's largest statutory health insurance company.  Tim Steinle introduced us to the work of TK, insurance regulations in Germany (pharmacy is very highly regulated, with low room for individuality regarding health plans) and TK's structure which includes rebate contracts.  TK recently started a program in which medication coaches meet with patients to provide pharmaceutical care.
