BKK for health professions

The BKK for health care professions existed as a statutory health insurance from 1996 until the end of 2011 and was then closed by the Federal Insurance Office after failed merger attempts. An economic operation of the BKK for health care professions could no longer be represented due to the double-digit deficit over several years. As a result of the closure, more than 100,000 insured people had to find new statutory health insurance. The business operations of the BKK for health care professions have continued since then as a “corporation under public law” until all matters relating to former customers, service providers and other persons and organizations with business relationships with the BKK have been completed.
