Does a change of canton influence the size of the premiums?

This is possible, as the premium of the mandatory health insurance (basic insurance) will be adjusted to the regional premium levels. 
A possible premium increase due to a change of residence is not valid as a reason for cancellation.


Change address

Why do premiums increase at regular intervals?

The health insurance premiums mirror the constantly increasing health care costs. 

I am getting divorced. Will I have to pay higher premiums as a single person?

Splitting up into individual policies (e.g. following a divorce) has no effect on the premium level. Only a change of address can mean a change into a different premium region and, with it, be the reason for a change of premium level.


Removal from joint policy

Our child is an adult and is moving out. He or she shall pay health insurance premiums him- or herself in the future. What do we have to do, what information does ÖKK need?

If families want their adult children to pay their own health insurance premiums, we require a written notification from a family member (father, mother or child) with the new address, the bank or post account and any possible desired modifications of insurance coverage.
