If you have statutory health and nursing care insurance through the Künstlersozialkasse, you can change your health insurance fund under certain conditions.

  • the local health insurance fund of your place of residence or work
  • A substitute health insurance fund
  • a company or guild health insurance fund, if the fund's statutes provide for it
  • the German Pension Insurance Knappschaft-Bahn-See

The benefits of the statutory health and nursing care insurance are largely the same for all health insurance funds. However, there are differences

  • in the amount of the additional contribution
  • the range of services and
  • additional benefits or benefits according to the statutes.

The health insurance funds provide information about their benefits and services.
The nursing care insurance funds are affiliated with the health insurance funds. If you change your health insurance fund, you automatically change your nursing care insurance fund.
