Corporate structure

The Helsana Group comprises Helsana and Progrès.

Benefits covered under basic insurance

The benefits Helsana is obliged to cover under basic insurance are prescribed by law – as is the case with all health insurance companies. If policyholders switch to Helsana, they will therefore receive the same benefits as they did with their former health insurance company.

Switching to Helsana for basic insurance

The Health Insurance Act obliges the health insurers to accept all applicants for the mandatory basic insurance irrespective of age, gender or state of health. This means that anybody may switch to Helsana. However, attention should be given to the health insurers' notification periods.

Helsana offers its standard model of mandatory basic insurance throughout Switzerland. In addition, Helsana also offers alternative models such as the Telmed, HMO and family doctor models.
