You can also save by:
Suspension for long military service
If you have served for at least 60 consecutive days (military, civil, Red Cross, civil defence), you can request reimbursement for insurance premiums for this period. With your marching orders, basic insurance premiums can be suspended for this period.
Limiting doctor’s visits
If you limit your visits to the doctor, you will incur fewer costs and relieve your wallet. Medical advice for questions regarding your health under the telephone number 0844 655 655 is available to you around the clock for free.
Ask for generics
Pharmacists can replace original medications with more affordable generics (same ingredients as the original drug) if the doctor does not expressly prescribe an original drug.
in case of low income
People with low income receive premium reductions from their canton of residence in order to pay the premiums for the basic insurance plan. Please request information from your local authority.
What is the ÖKK family discount?

(subsidies) from their canton so that they can pay premiums for the basic insurance plan. Every canton determines how much of the costs it will share and how the administrative processing is carried out.
