Re: Cancelling Insurance

What kind of insurance is it?

In any case, look at your contract. It probably states pretty clearly the terms and conditions that allow you to cancel the contract.

Re: Cancelling Insurance

1) Send Group Mutuel a letter cancelling your insurance effective xx.xx.2015 due to departure from Switzerland.
2) Remove your direct debit/ standing order authorization for Group Mutuel at your bank.

Group Mutuel may come back to you requesting a certificate of de-registration from your commune which you should then supply when you receive it.

Not so fast, you may have to pay for 3 months after you leave if you move to the EU, as the insurer has to cover 3 months as a tourist. If you can show medical cover in you new country then thats OK & they will cancel immediately.
