In Switzerland, health insurance is compulsory for people residing or staying for more than three months without exemption.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

What does basic health insurance cover in Switzerland?

Can I choose any health insurer I want?

Does age influence the price of foreign student insurance?

Yes, age can impact the price of foreign student insurance in Switzerland. It's essential to check specific insurance plans to see how age affects the pricing before you use them.

What is a Premium?

A premium is the amount you pay to an insurance company in exchange for financial protection in case of the accident. It's essentially the price tag of your insurance policy. In the context of health insurance in Switzerland, this is typically paid monthly, though some plans may offer quarterly or annual payment options. The amount of your premium is determined by various factors.

How are the premiums calculated?

Premium in Switzerland is calculated based on the insurance model, the deductible you choose, and the region you live in.

What happens if I don’t get health insurance?

Failure to secure health insurance within three months of living in Switzerland can result in penalties without exemption. The authorities may automatically assign an insurance provider to you, and you will need to pay backdated premiums.

How does health insurance for international students differ from local students?

Generally, the coverage remains the same, but international students might be eligible for specific plans tailored to their needs or might have to provide additional documentation to be insured.

Can I transfer or cancel my insurance if I leave Switzerland?

Yes, you can cancel your health insurance if you stop living in Switzerland permanently. It's crucial to inform your insurance provider in advance and provide proof of departure.

How do I claim my insurance benefits?

To claim insurance benefits, you need first to pay the healthcare providers and then submit the bills and receipts to your insurance company for reimbursement. Some insurance models may allow direct billing, like ours.

What happens in the case of an accident?

In the event of an accident, it is important to seek immediate medical attention and treatment as needed. The hospital will provide the necessary care, and they will subsequently send the bill to your insurance company for reimbursement. This ensures that the responsibility for medical expenses in emergency situations lies with the hospital rather than the patient. It's crucial to promptly inform your insurance company about the situation to initiate the reimbursement process.

What should I do if I face a medical emergency?

In case of a medical emergency, seek attention and treatment immediately! For life-threatening situations, call the emergency number (144 in Switzerland). Once stabilized, inform your insurance providers about the situation.

Will I be offered Legal help from Evasan?

What does supplemental insurance mean?

These supplementary plans are designed to fill in gaps or offer additional benefits that may not be included in the primary insurance policy.
