European Social and Health Policy focus

  1. Keeping up and developing on a European level of legal security the principle of payment in kind by making possible the stipulation of cross-border contracts with foreign suppliers.
  2. Keeping up the principle of self-government within the statutory health insurance system and developing same on the legal European level.

Aim, structure and tasks of the organization

    The BLK is a body of public law. The tasks of the BLK arise from § 217 SGB V. The BLK should support the health insurance suppliers within the sector of agriculture safeguarding the proper tasks that are stipulated by the law. The agricultural health insurance (LKV) is a special self-governed system linked to the profession itsself. Farmes, former farmers and members of their families are assured by law against the risk of sickness (principle of solidarity)
