Spitex comparison

Private Spitex organizations

“Private” Spitex organizations are companies that have no obligation to supply services. In general, they assign a dedicated healthcare professional to their clients. With a few exceptions, they receive service-based residual financing from the canton or municipality, which is lower than the residual financing received by the public Spitex organizations with an obligation to provide services. Both public and private Spitex organizations are subject to cantonal supervision (operating licence) and invoice the health insurance companies directly.
