Cancellation of health insurance: when?

Yes, I see this is covered in many threads and appears to be a notice period of three months before the end of the year for supplementary, and one month for basic. I even found an English guide on it from the government and they offer a sample letter.

Sounds good, but I have a problem. My insurance company, after a 'battle' over them covering pregnancy costs where I informed them I plan to cancel, told me that as my policy started in April of this year, I can't cancel until the end of December 2012 (with written notice by end of November 2012). I haven't found any literature to support this. I'm quite distraught, having spent thousands already on bills for an uncomplicated pregnancy that I have yet to see money for. I have received conflicting responses that generally show the company as very dishonest.

I desperately want to change and have received an offer from another company that I want to accept. Any advice would be super. Thanks so much. :/

Edit: Just to add that I am on basic insurance only.

Re: Cancellation of health insurance: when?

Contact Jenny on the forum, maybe she can help you. Do a search on insurance and you will find her. I personally would still send the formal cancellation letter by Monday with reciept confirmation as it needs to be recieved in hand by the end of November.

Re: Cancellation of health insurance: when?

Do so by recommended post so you have proof, including date.

A little update: Atupri was dishonest with their dates. Indeed I could cancel by the November deadline of this year and have done so. Thanks also to Jenny. =)
