Can I cancel my health insurance policy while I'm abroad for 4 months?

Hi,

I'm a foreign worker holding a L permit. I'm becoming unemployed and I'm leaving Switzerland in December for 4 months.

Can I cancel my health insurance policy during this period if I get the "Attestation de Départ Définitif" (Certificate of Deregistration)?

Thank you in advance

Sure, but your permit will be cancelled as well.

Thanks, Tom. There's no problem about that since I'll not be working here during the winter season.

Thanks again for your help!

Health insurance works on a monthly rate, no pro-rata!

So to be excused 4 months insurance, make sure you have the leaving certificate in your hand before the 30th November 2015, and do not register before 1st March 2016.
