Families – covered especially well!
Customers pay a premium for their BIG insurance based on their income. If there are family members that do not have any income, they can be covered free of charge - this is known as family insurance.
The following conditions apply:
- The family members cannot be employed
- they earn only up to a maximum of 485 Euro per month.
Free family insurance is possible for the following family members:
- Spouses or civil partners according to the Civil Partnership Act (Lebenspartnerschaftsgesetz)
- Legitimate and adopted children up to 18 years of age
- Children of family-insured children
- Stepchildren and grandchildren whose livelihood is predominantly provided by you as a member
- foster children, if you do not care for them professionally
Your family members will then also receive an insurance card and can use it at the doctor's office and in the hospital.
We will be happy to check for you whether free family insurance is possible for your dependents.
