Inform the artists' social security fund of the change of health insurance


As a person who is subject to statutory health and long-term care insurance through the Artists' Social Insurance Fund (KSK), you can choose your health insurance company. You can choose from the following statutory health insurance companies:

  • the local health insurance fund of your place of residence or work
  • a substitute fund
  • a company or guild health insurance fund, if the statutes of the fund provide for this
  • the German Pension Insurance Knappschaft-Bahn-See.

The benefits of statutory health and long-term care insurance are largely the same for all health insurance companies. However, there are differences:

  • in the amount of the additional contribution,
  • in the range of services offered, and
  • in the case of additional benefits or statutory benefits.

The health insurance companies will inform you about their benefits and service offerings.

The long-term care insurance funds are affiliated to the health insurance funds. If you change your health insurance provider, you will automatically change your long-term care insurance as well.
