Not only premiums are crucial – services also count

Before switching, however, you should check whether the new health insurance offers the same additional benefits as your old health insurance . Barmer GEK spokesman Athanasios Drougias commented on TK’s new top position: “Having the most insured is nice, but not decisive for the competition.” On the other hand, the best service and innovative services are decisive. Some funds prefer to invest their surpluses in an expansion of services and quality of service. A precise comparison of the offers is therefore recommended before a change. For example, about three out of four health insurance companies offer a grant for professional teeth cleaning. But how often and how high this turns out is sometimes very different.

These deadlines must be observed when changing

You must also ensure that a notice period applies. You can cancel for the month after next calendar month. So, if you quit today, you can insure yourselves to 1 May 2014 in a new health insurance. However, an existing membership can only be terminated if it has existed for at least 18 months. Therefore, also applies to Wechsler : They are bound for the next year and a half to the new health insurance.
