Sickness funds uneasy at German arbitration board fee decision

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

An apparent attempt by the Saxony BKK Zollern-Alb statutory health insurance fund to avoid paying additional taxes by moving its headquarters from Balingen, west Germany, to Dresden in east Germany has been blocked by the national arbitration board. This move was to have saved the sickness fund E25.6m ($27m) that it would have been required to pay according to the Wohnortprinzip law, which determines that contributions paid to a sickness fund must be spent in the area in which the fund member resides.
