What is the Privatversicherten next year after the enormous contribution increases earlier this year and there were even voices that demanded its abolition of the subsequent discussion on post explosions (PKV), private health insurance. Given the previously present data about the tax cuts of many global 2013, this reaction seems somewhat exaggerated. 2013 positive premium development the beginning makes Germany’s biggest private health insurance, the Debeka. She has announced not only post guarantees, but also for 100,000 elderly members provided a reduction in posts in Vista. Thus the Debeka standards again, and keeps the car stable contributions runf a quarter of all Privatversicherten. The Debeka, however, is not the only private health insurance.
Next to her, many more service providers for 2013 intend making no contribution increase for many of their fares. These include among others the Barmenia, the Signal Iduna and the HanseMerkur.

Also the Halle and Gothaer private health insurance in this regard tax cuts announced for 2013. Hidden contribution increases has recently become known some private health insurance companies try to disguise their premium adjustments. So get the customers to such credits, which are charged directly to the contributions. A while continuing the credit is however uncertain and will after the expiry, the amount charged back in full. Increases of deductibles are a further stumbling block. These affect directly on the level of contributions by this fall. However, more out of his own pocket to be paid now. (O.
