Private insurance law (VVG: Insurance Contract Act), insurance law of daily sickness benefits

Private insurance law regulates the relationship between the insurer and the policyholder. The rights and obligations of the contracting parties are regulated in the insurance contract. These are also supplemented and set out in more detail by the general terms and conditions and the Federal Insurance Contract Act (VVG).
