The health insurance system in Switzerland

The health insurance system in Switzerland comprises mandatory basic health insurance and a wide range of supplemental insurance products. Find the deal that works for you at

Basic health insurance
Basic health insurance is compulsory for anyone residing in Switzerland. Basic insurance cover is precisely defined in the Health Insurance Act (KVG) and is the same irrespective of health insurer. Health insurance providers are obliged to accept every applicant for basic insurance.

Supplemental health insurance
Unlike with basic insurance, supplemental insurance cover varies from insurer to insurer. So it's well worth comparing. With supplemental insurance, insurers are free to set the premiums according to risk, i.e. depending on age and gender. They may also impose provisos or turn down applicants without giving a reason.

Insurance for families

It's worth applying for insurance before your baby is born, as most supplemental insurance policies can be taken out for babies without a health check. After the baby is born, you have three months in which to find a health insurer. Organising these administrative matters in advance means you will have more time to enjoy your baby after the birth. You can also rest assured that cover is in place if your child is born with a medical condition.
