Aid fund: After the banks now the health insurance companies?
(06/18/2010) After three health insurance companies have registered the impending insolvency, according to media reports, the Federal Association of Company Health Insurance Funds is thinking aloud about setting up a rescue fund with aid funds for vulnerable health insurance companies. This is to prevent further health insurance companies from going bankrupt.
After three health insurance companies have registered impending insolvency, media reports from the Federal Association of Company Health Insurance Funds are considering opening a rescue fund with aid funds for vulnerable health insurance companies. The Joint Company Health Insurance Fund in Cologne, the City BKK and the BKK for health care professionals should not be the only health insurance companies that have massive financial difficulties. And before there is a domino effect at the statutory health insurance companies, a umbrella in the form of a rescue fund should be set up by the respective umbrella organizations. Because the debts of the health insurers that are in danger of insolvency fall back on the remaining insurers and could also bring them into disaster.
The Federal Insurance Office (BVA) had already made an appeal to those responsible for politics because a cash deficit of over ten billion euros is expected again in 2011. And measures would have to be adopted at an early stage, which would still need some time to be implemented before they would take effect in 2011. According to the experts, insured persons should not worry about their medical care - this is guaranteed in any case and costs will be borne, despite the insolvency of a health insurance fund. (tf)
