You can change health insurance group here.

You can choose between two insurance groups:

For group 1, you must be registered with a specific doctor, and you must have a referral to specialists.

For group 2, you do not have to be registered with a specific doctor, you do not have to have a referral to specialists, BUT you have to pay the difference yourself if the price of treatment by a doctor or specialist is higher than the subsidy.

You can see on your health card which insurance group you are in. The vast majority of citizens are in insurance group 1. You can make a group change again after 1 year at the earliest.
