Insurance is a racket

Today, health insurance is mandatory in my country, and you pay 15% of your gross income for it. Sounds acceptable, right? Except when you find out that, according to the insurance companies, 15% of ZERO is 170 €. FML

So that begs more questions. Are you unemployed, and if so, is there some kind of unemployment benefit/insurance you can use? Do you live with someone who makes all the money? Is this just a clerical error?

Perhaps 170 € is a minimum? It's 15% from 1133 €, which in Germany is under minimum wage.
