What is a Krankenkassenpolice

I just moved from Lausanne to Zug, and the canton of Zug asked me to provide them with a copy of my Krankenkassenpolice?

What is that? Is it my insurance card? I have only an insurance card from my insurance company? Is Krankenkassenpolice something different?

Re: What is a Krankenkassenpolice

It's the policy from your insurance. You should have a copy, or it might be available through an online portal. Or call your insurer and tell them what you need.

Re: What is a Krankenkassenpolice

It's an arm of the cantonal police. You have to demonstrate that you've never had any sick days off work without justification, nor been charged with visiting a doctor to ask for a sick note when in reality you were just hung over, had a bit off a sniffle, or really couldn't face the music because you hadn't finished that project that was due last Friday.

If the Krankenkassenpolice are sure (sicher) that you're not on their naughty list, they will issue a Krankenversicherungsbestätigung which you can then take to the cantonal authorities.

I think you'll find that the above is only applicable to workers of Sports-Direct.
