Maximum annual costs to be borne by the insured person for home care
The remaining costs of home care are covered by basic health insurance and the municipality/canton.
Please note: The cost of day-to-day help and support (e.g. shopping, cooking, cleaning, washing, ironing, accompanying the client on walks and to doctor’s appointments, night duty, meal services and on-call services) are not included here. In certain circumstances, these costs may be higher than the total cost of home care.
The term “day-to-day help and support” refers to psychosocial and domestic/housekeeping services. It does not include medical care services and therefore is not covered by basic health insurance. The costs may, however, be reimbursed via supplemental insurance, if available. The client will therefore be invoiced separately for these services. The range of services and the costs can vary according to the organization and may in certain circumstances be higher than the home care costs to be borne by the insured persons themselves.
