Re: Are you eligible for a subsidy?

Exactly.

And, the amount given is related to your income and not related to how much you pay per month nor is it a percentage of your premium. It is a fixed amount which (normally) they review each year.

It sounds like it would definitely be worth looking into for you NatsBrit.

Another point to remember is that they will only cover your basic (LAMal / KVG) insurance and not the supplementary.

For those families who are on low income and have several children, it is worth looking into those companies who give the children free supplementary - be it for 12 months or until they're 18 - that way you get the basic paid for by the governement and the supplementary "given" by your insurance company leaving you with a whopping bill of 0.- for your kids supplementary
