DKV merges with Victoria Health Insurance: through the merger, insured persons can claim each other's tariffs.

The private health insurance companies DKV and Victoria Health Insurance merged on October 1st retrospectively to January 1st 2010. The health insurance business continues under the trade name DKV.

After the merger, the new insurance company has a membership of around 4.4 million insured. The premium income is estimated at around 4.5 billion euros annually. This makes DKV the largest private health insurance in Germany.

A few details change for the insured. It could be an advantage that all members now have access to the different PKV tariffs. This means that members can access the DKV and the Victoria tariffs at the same time. With this option, the insurance company hopes to strengthen new contracts. Former Victoria policyholders can also access the DKV-operated network of doctors and dentists. According to the company, this should enable insured persons to receive quality-assured private medical and private dental care. In the case of a serious illness, a specialized specialist can be referred within a short time. Important: Despite the merger, all existing insurance contracts will continue to exist with all rights and obligations. Only the name of the insurance company changes for the Victoria health insured. You are then insured with the DKV.

On January 1, 2011, the former Hesse Minister of Health, Silke Lautenschläger, will also join the DKV board. From 2001 to 2009 she was responsible for health, among other things, as state minister for social affairs, then for environment, energy, agriculture and consumer protection. Employees do not have to expect redundancies, the company said. (sb, 07.10.2010)
