Health insurance numIKK puts numbers to costs and benefits of extra benefits before claims are frivolous, if you can not support with facts”, says Achim sailors who board the northern and Central German IKK (numIKK). His criticism is aimed in the direction of some health economists, who doubt the economic benefits of the bonus programs adopted by virtually all health insurance companies. We can prove the opposite!” Contribution funds of around EUR 100 million were employed in the last year according to the news magazine focus as a reward for health-conscious behaviour of the insured. The customers of numIKK earn points not only for the participation in the regular care and vaccination dates. There are also bonus points, if they come to the health courses paid by the Fund or for nutrition and movement consulting. These tools specifically required by the legislator in the long term reduce performance issues, the opponents of the bonus systems can not imagine.

Bonus program is not equal to bonus program. Here, the statutory health insurance companies have chosen very different approaches.

This is true now also for the male customers who only very rarely check up 35 or were seen in the early detection of cancer. After all, they were numIKK one-third of all of the topbonus which according to the current evaluation. Anyone who still thinks that health insurance companies should limit on the payment of medical expenses and drugs, has not understood the signs of the times”, continue as sailors. Over 1.7 million more have gobbled up services for the control groups without a bonus program in comparison to the expense for the topbonus. “And we can consider it not only in economic terms.” This sum is put together from diseases and human fates. “Achim sailors: If we can provide through prevention offers and bonus programs for the health of the insured, every cent is just right!” Press contact Thomas Wiechert Guizettistrasse 1, 29221 Celle phone 05141.9285-85.
