Health insurance with canton participating ?

Is that possible at all ?
I think I read somewhere that in some cases, canton is participating in the monthly fee for the health insurance .

Re: Health insurance with canton participating ?

What you'd be looking for is a health insurance subsidy.

Keep in mind that in order to bring your family you need to prove you have the funds to support them. If you need help paying health insurance that probably is not going to count as being able to support the whole family on your own.

Edit - I think I saw before you're going to be in BaselLand. Some info here:

Edit 2 - The subsidy/reduction is only for the mandatory health insurance and it is not automatic. If you would like supplemental coverage (half private or private) you don't get any assistance for that.

Also in some places health insurance subsidy is considered social help. To continue getting permits you may need to prove you're not on social help.
