About Concordia

In 1914, when the Health and Accident Insurance Act (KUVG) was introduced, Concordia emerged from the Health Insurance Association of the Swiss Catholic People's Association. At first, its head office was in Zug. In 1919, Concordia moved to Lucerne.
On 1 January 2007, the Concordia Swiss Health and Accident Insurance Association assigned their health and accident insurance business to the newly founded corporation which carries the same name. The new corporation also took over all rights and obligations of the association. The corporation was integrated into a holding structure (Concordia Participations Ltd). As sole shareholder, the Concordia Association maintained control over the health insurance business.

Benefits covered under basic insurance

Benefits of the mandatory basic insurance are prescribed by law. Therefore, the benefits are consistent among all insurance providers.

Switching to Concordia for basic insurance

There is complete freedom to choose one's provider of mandatory basic insurance. Therefore, health insurance providers must accept all insured persons irrespective of age, gender or state of health. However, attention should be given to the health insurers' notification periods when changing one's insurance.

Where is Concordia active?

If you have medical concerns or uncertainties, qualified experts are able to advise you on the phone.
