Federal government is looking for unity health insurance for all asylum seekers

A project of the Federal office for the Migration (SEM) for vortex: It wants to re-insure all the asylum seekers in the Federal centres, and with the same insurance company. In this Treasury, all rejected asylum-seekers, is likely to stay longer than three months in Switzerland to come.

The Federal government wants to create a unity Fund for asylum-seekers. The Federal administration is looking for now in a public tender, a health insurance company that is willing to take on the big job. The administration hopes that this will, apparently, an administrative simplification.

For health insurance expert Felix Schneuwly is the Plan of the Federal government, however, nonsense. It was clear that the planned unit Fund will be an expensive solution: "more tax money than is necessary." There is no reason that asylum seekers do not register just for the cheapest health insurance company in the respective Canton as well as make it today, most of the cantons. Because each insurance company had a duty to any living Person, even asylum seekers. So be sure that the premiums for the asylum seekers cost the state as little as possible.

of the total tender, as the Federal government is now launching, the health insurance companies, however, in the duty. You can't apply for the big job, but need to. "The Federal government must expect that the cheapest health insurance companies will submit no offer", says Schneuwly. The result, according to the health insurance experts: "An expensive health insurance will get the award." Apart from that, there is such a tender no statutory basis.

cheap cash Assura wants to not cash play

The reality is legal concerns of the health insurance experts Schneuwly in at least one point so far. So in all cantons, cheapest basic health insurance is fixed for the Assura – already today, that you will not apply for the big job of the Federal government. The Assura spokeswoman Clémentine Grand notify on request. Also, Reto Egloff, CEO of the KPT, a further cheap health insurance, doubts that it is for his health insurance pays for all asylum seekers.

Whether asylum seekers costs at the end of on average, more health than the average population, is controversial. A study by the Center for Global Development in Washington, in cooperation with the state Chancellery of North Rhine Westphalia has come 2017 to the conclusion that asylum-seekers have caused in Germany in 2016, ten percent more health costs. Depending on the origin of the asylum seekers can also be different.

SEM speaker Lukas Rieder refers to a fact sheet on the Internet: the Federal office in the self-interpretation of the law, the Federal government had the choice of the asylum seekers individually or to insure all at the same checkout. Mischa Aebi
