Explanation:
This requires an understanding of German health insurance rules.

The author of this statement "Wir" states that they will pay half the amount which is due on applying the general contribution rate (allgemeinen Beitragssatz) less 0.9 percentage points to the pension.

This results from the fact that the last government decided certain benefits are to paid for by insured persons alone. These are covered by the 0.9 % contribution.

The other benefits are paid for on a 50/50 split.

So if the allgemeinene Beitragssatz is 15.5% this has to be reduced by 0.9 points to 14.6%. The author of the statement will pay to the health insurance fund the amount which results from applying half of this i.e. 7.3% to the pension payment.

Hope this makes sense.
