Signing up for insurance.. some quick questions

Hi there,

I arrived and started work on the 1st April.

Only now getting around to signing up for insurance and I've recently got an apartment and work permit etc.

Questions..

1. Do I need to send anything to the canton or OCP to notify them that I have signed up for insurance?.. So far I have received nothing from them to indicate that I need to sign up for health insurance.

2. Do I need to change the date that I sign up for the insurance on? I have it filled in for the 1st July. But should I set it up for 1st April, i.e when I arrived? I recall someone saying you need to pay from the day you arrive.

Thanks,
Alan

I don't think you need to say anything to the kanton unless they ask. Technically/Legally you need to sign up for insurance from the month you arrived, butr I know of people who have signed up at a later date and were not punished. Others have tried and recieved a note that they need to pay from their arrival.

You will pay from the day you got your permit..which is not necessarily the day you arrived.
