is based in Düsseldorf. The company offers advanced supplementary insurance for those who have taken out public health insurance (GKV). As GKV offers a reduced service compared to private health insurance, supplementary insurance is an option to top-up the policy features you would like which are not provided by GKV. A small insurer, they total just over 20,000 insured, with policy revenue of around 19 million Eur.
What are the benefits to Vigo Krankenversicherung?
Vigo Krankenversicherung offers supplementary insurance to those who take out public health insurance and as such is maybe not the perfect and least complicated option for the high-earning expatriate, who may wish for a simplier service with less form-filling, such as what is provided by pure private health insurance coverage. Lanhuage support is another issue that comes with such a small insurer, and many foreigners would struggle with completing forms in German. Condequently, Vigo Krankenversicherung is not a prime target for those hailing from the expatriate community.
If Vigo Krankenversicherung is not for you, or you wish to find out which is the most popular choice for expatriates (including those insurers who provide services in English), then The Eye Newspapers, which is run by expatriates and German nationals alike, is able to guide you around any obstacles or answer any of your questions.
