It is law that medical insurance (social security) is paid on behalf of the employee by the empolyer. Your friend should see a contribution deducted from his pay on his/her payslip. I believe the employee pays approx 7% while the empolyer 3%. I expect is will be the most basic of insurances and may only cover a percentage of the treatment required and will not cover medication however i can not be 100% on that.
