Health-insurance premiums can strain the household budget. Persons with low incomes are entitled to premium reductions
from the canton, which means that the canton pays for part of the health insurance premium.
If you are entitled to a reduction, you will automatically be notified by the Lucerne Compensation Office (Ausgleichskasse Luzern). In order to qualify, you must send in a form by the due date every year.
You can obtain further information from the Ausgleichskasse for the city of Lucerne. Ausgleichskasse Luzern

Patients with low incomes can arrange to pay most medical and hospital bills in installments. Your doctor can give you more information in this regard.
