Re: Insurance Runaround

but it will be up to the insurer to decide whether to levy the fine. I donít think a lawyer is necessary.
The insurance can not levy a fine. The maximum the insurance can do is to increase the monthly premium for a certain period. Based on Art. 5 KVG https://www.admin.ch/opc/de/classifi.../index.html#a5 and Ńrt. 8 KVV https://www.admin.ch/opc/de/classifi.../index.html#a8

If there is a fine, or even more likely a monetary penalty it will be based on Art. 92 KVG and will come from a criminal prosecutor or judge https://www.admin.ch/opc/de/classifi...index.html#a92

There will be a criminal record entry if it is a fine (Busse) of more than CHF 5000 or a if it is a monetary penalty (Geldstrafe) of any amount.
