EGK-Gesundheitskasse – a reliable partner since 1919
Innovative products and services for health-conscious insured persons - these are the specialties of EGK-Gesundheitskasse. EGK is not just a health insurer. With us you get more. And for more than a hundred years. At that time, EGK-Gesundheitskasse was founded as a self-help organisation called "Krankenkasse des Birstals" (Health Insurance Company of Birstal.)
At an early stage, EGK played a pioneering role in the equal treatment of conventional and complementary medicine. For this reason, we enable our insured persons barrier-free access to complementary medical therapies. Behind this is the conviction that every patient should be seen holistically.
Insurance with professional advice and personal service
We have preserved this heritage and are successfully living up to these values in the 21st century. To this day our insured persons are at the centre. "Healthy insurance" is not just a slogan, but our philosophy.
Everyone has a shared responsibility for their health and we help them to promote, care for and preserve it. We rely on professional advice and personal service by our agencies in your area. This is how security and trust are created - the basis for sustainable customer satisfaction.
Basic and supplementary insurance separated
In our insurance solutions we enable you to make a conscious choice between basic and private insurance. In organisational terms, EGK-Gesundheitskasse manages the divisions of basic insurance and supplementary insurance separately. If you choose to take out both classes of insurance, your confidential data will not be exchanged between basic and supplementary insurance. And you still benefit from an insurance solution that gives you everything from one source.
