An accident suffered by an employee can lead to high costs: Hospital treatment, repatriation, therapy, compensation for lost earnings, pension payments and reintegration measures.
The benefits that are due from compulsory accident insurance pursuant to the Federal Law on Accident Insurance (UVG) are limited. This is why supplementary accident insurance from SWICA covers further benefits, such as:
- Pay components above the legal maximum of CHF 148,200
- Extra costs of hospital treatment in a private room
- Costs not covered abroad
- Bridging capital in the event of disability and death.
