Health insurance on changing canton

Hi,
Presently I live in Bern and have Sansan health insurance. If I decide to change my canton to Zurich or Ticino in coming months, then my insurance premium with Sansan increases substantially.

Can anyone suggest if it is possible to switch health insurance provider while changing cantons ?

I am sure if I change the canton I have to inform the health insurance company. Isn't it ?

Thanks for replies

You definitely have to inform your insurance. As you say, since Sansan, member of Helsana group is the reference in Bern, you may have to pay a higher premium.

And definitely you better change insurance company depending on where you will go.

It is not possible to change during the year. Therefore take position as soon as you know where you go, knowing that all will take effect as per the 1.1.2013.

Would you go to Zurich, the Group Mutuel seems to be the best company. With Group Mutuel, you can also lower the premiums paid by increasing the franchise and taking a complementary that ensures your franchise in case of more than 24 h in a hospital.
