Change of address: health insurance provider

General information

Under certain circumstances, you may have to inform your health insurance provider of a change of address. In most cases, changes of address are notified by your employer or the Public Employment Service.


If you are currently in gainful employment, your employer will submit the change of address notification. If you are receiving benefits from the Public Employment Service (unemployment allowance, emergency assistance etc.), the notification will be made by the Public Employment Service. As such, it is primarily farmers and the self-employed who must ensure they submit this notification themselves.
