Erfurt - Around 300 Thuringian officials have applied for aid to pay health insurance contributions. This emerges from figures from the state aid agency in Stadtroda, which the Thuringian Ministry of Finance published today.
Thuringia puts officials in front of the Choice of whether you want to be legally or privately insured. So far, officials with statutory health insurance had to pay for their own contributions. From January 1st, the country will give them flat-rate subsidy so that civil servants can change without fear of financial disadvantages.
According to Finance Minister Taubert, change to statutory insurance can be worthwhile - especially for civil servants of the lower classes Grades and if the staff have children. However, change cannot be undone later.
