Corporate structure

Sanitas was established as a foundation in 1958. In 2004, its operative business was handed over to joint stock companies. In 2010, Sanitas converted the companies into a holding structure. Since then, Sanitas Grundversicherungen AG, Sanitas Privatversicherungen AG and Compact Grundversicherungen AG have been part of the Sanitas Beteiligungen AG.

Benefits covered under basic insurance

For the mandatory basic insurance, the benefits that the health insurers must cover are stipulated by law.

Switching to Sanitas for health insurance

Attention should be given to the notification periods when changing one's insurance. Otherwise the freedom to choose one's insurer applies for the mandatory part of health insurance: health insurance providers must accept all applicants and may not reject them based on age, gender or state of health nor may they impose any provisos.
