CERN Health Insurance Scheme - changes on 1 January 2011

Changes decided by the Council on 16 December 2010

Following the five-yearly review of financial and social conditions, which included the CERN Health Insurance Scheme (CHIS), the CERN Council has taken certain decisions which affect both active and retired staff.

In order to restore the financial equilibrium of the CHIS, the level of contributions will increase progressively over the next five years.

In 2011, the contributions of both active and retired members increase from 4.02% to 4.27%. The amounts of the fixed premiums for voluntary insured members (e.g. users and associates) as well as the supplementary contributions for spouses with an income from a professional activity increase accordingly.

The amounts of the daily allowance for Long-Term Care have been increased by 20% as of 1 January 2011.

The CHIS Rules have been amended according to the above decisions. They entered into force on 1 January 2011 and are available on the CHIS site.
