The nationwide open health insurance company “BKK firmus” with its main locations in Bremen and Osnabrück keeps the additional premium at just 0.84%, even at the start of 2022. The Board of Directors decided unanimously in its last meeting.
The consequences of the Covid19 pandemic, in connection with expensive legislative resolutions by the past federal government, have torn a large hole in the budgets of the statutory health insurance (GKV) and are putting the health insurers under considerable cost pressure. As a result, a large number of health insurances will increase the individual additional contribution at the beginning of the year 2022, so that millions of insured persons have a special right of termination and can switch providers.
Unchanged range of additional services at BKK firmus
Regardless of the massive increase in expenditure, the board of directors of BKK firmus has decided to keep the below-average additional contribution of only 0.84% constant at the beginning of 2022. This is made possible by a serious financial policy in the past few years and a lean administration. This means that the BKK firmus remains one of the cheapest statutory health insurance companies. Compared to more expensive competitors, this results in annual savings of up to 220 euros.
The financial relief is even greater if you include the value of the various additional services, which amount to several hundred euros per year and member. These additional benefits will also be available to the insured in full in 2022. This means that BKK firmus continues to be one of the market leaders and, for example, will continue to offer its insured persons a subsidy for professional tooth cleaning, various protective vaccinations and much more in the future
Most popular health insurance company in Germany
In addition to the attractive price-performance ratio, it is the excellent customer service that makes the company health insurance fund so popular. The number of customers almost doubled in the past year – a growth rate that is unique in the statutory health insurance system.
In addition to the large increase in customers, the BKK firmus can also boast of being the most popular health insurance company in Germany on leading rating platforms (e.g. Trustpilot.de, as of 12/2021). This is made possible by the ‘healthy and good’ overall package of price, services and customer service.
