Changing health insurance to Cygna

Hello forum,

I have good a very good (and much broader) offer from Cygna (a US insurance company).

After checking with Concordia to cancel my current insurance they claim I need a 'Befreiungsgesuch OKP' otherwise they will not cancel my current one.


Any experience with it ?


Thanks.


Johan.

You should first check with your gemeinde/cantonal health office if the Cygna cover would be acceptable here, most foreign policies aren't.

Any update on this? I see Cygna adds all the time and looks interesting as they provide WW cover not just CH in case I get transferred in the future. But always hesitant to be the first in!
