Local authorities communicate in English as well.
Not around here, nor in my wife's Heimatort, nor in mine.

Re: Switzerland and insurance

OP I appreciate this must be a really tough time for you - it would be for anyone - and hopefully you will come out of it the other side in better shape.

Is it possible that your cousin actually DIDN'T pay the insurance and just pocketed the money? If that is the case, what are you going to do? Have you got evidence that you have been giving money to your cousin? Maybe you can try and recover it from him. Otherwise you already seem to have thought of an option: pack your bags and move somewhere else (I personally think that this option doesn't solve the underlying problem and is a case of just running away but my opinion doesn't matter).

I could be wrong but based on what you have said so far, I think your cousin is feeding you BS and stringing you along when he has clearly not paid the insurance on your behalf.

I think you have already been given very good advice, hopefully you will take it or find an alternative resolution. In any case, good luck.

Since I had a stop of work for 2 to 3 months, he also cancelled the insurance, because I was not working in Switzerland.

Now I got back, and have been working for 1 month now, it will be 2 months by the end of this month.
Just to be clear:
Mandatory health insurance has nothing to do with having a job or not (ignoring the optional accident insurance).

If you're registered here you must be health insured, full stop. Leaving the country changes nothing if you're still registered.

AFAIK, only if you de-register and inform the insurance will they let you out immediately.

And send in a document from your commune to the insurance stating that you have de-registered (original, not a photocopy).

I had to do that when my daughter moved to the US.
