No negative effect on premiums in 2021

Sympany has sufficiently large reserves. The current situation in particular shows just how important these reserves are. They mean we can also take on any additional costs that may arise now and during the course of the year due to coronavirus. These additional costs for Sympany will not affect our premiums in 2021.

The costs are covered

The costs covered if coronavirus is suspected or results in illness are clearly set out: Since 25 June 2020, the Federal Government has been covering all costs for medically ordered tests – both for tests for corona virus infection and serological tests for the detection of antibodies. Treatment costs (visits to the doctor and general hospital departments) are covered by basic insurance (less any excess and deductible).
