Organisation of the National Association

The National Association of Statutory Health Insurance Funds is a public-law corporation. It is characterised by a lean organisational structure. Flat hierarchies guarantee that little information is lost and that there is a high degree of transparency, both in flows from the Board to the staff and vice versa.
