Merger of Sanitas and Compact

25 October 2021

Compact Grundversicherungen AG and Sanitas Grundversicherungen AG are merging as of 1 January 2022.

Please note that your insurance cover and our services will remain the same. Compact customers do not have to do anything. They will automatically receive their new insurance card before the end of the year.

What will happen with the individual Compact plans?

  • Compact One: This plan remains unchanged and will be added to the product portfolio of Sanitas Grundversicherungen AG.
  • Compact Basic: Customers who have taken out this basic insurance plan with free choice of doctors will be transferred to Sanitas Basic – an equivalent Sanitas plan with free choice of doctors.
  • Compact KVG daily benefits for illness and accident: Customers with these plans will automatically receive equivalent Sanitas insurance plans.

Good to know:

  • As of 1 January 2022, customers of Compact Grundversicherungen AG will be managed under Sanitas Grundversicherungen AG.
  • Premiums for basic insurance and daily benefits insurance will be recalculated for all Sanitas and Compact customers together. You will find details of your premium as of 1 January 2022 in your policy document.
  • The standard notices of termination apply: basic insurance can be terminated up to 30 November 2021. By law, customers can switch to another insurer if they have paid all outstanding premiums and cost shares and have confirmation from the new insurer.
  • The planned merger has been agreed with the Federal Office of Public Health (FOPH).
