on the example of the German ring and signal medical insurance Club G, a report with the headline “Deutscher ring gives up?” appeared yesterday in another blog. The newspapers mentioned Nieman Foundation not as a source, but as a related topic. There was that his new business would give up of Deutsche ring medical insurance Club G and this in the future should go Signal Iduna in the, the German ring in a group associated with the reported among other things of a rumor. Due to the fact that many of my customers in rates of the German ring are insured I sent an official request to the insurer.

Thus, it is clear the themselves on the structures, rates and also at the performance / application policy of the two Risikotrage Signal Iduna KVVG and Deutscher ring KVVag will not change. Just not a new, single company have caused only a group, but were and synergies and created.. out.
