The deadline for submitting notice of a change effective from 1 January of the coming year is 30 November.
The STANDARD basic insurance plan with a franchise of CHF 300 can also be terminated with effect from 30 June, as can the STANDARD basic insurance plan without an annual franchise, subject to receipt of notice by 31 March.
You can adjust your franchise every year with effect from 1 January (see also: How can I increase or reduce my annual franchise?).
If you change your place of residence, a change in the basic insurance plan is possible during the year with effect from the first day of the next month. This applies equally if you change to a FAVORIT plan of SWICA or change from one FAVORIT plan to another.
Please submit your notice of termination by the specified date, together with confirmation of acceptance by your new health insurer. Please note that it is not the stamp date that determines whether your termination is accepted. Notice of termination is only valid if received by SWICA on the last working day before the deadline.
Termination is possible on the condition that no premiums, cost sharing, interest on arrears or debt collection fees for the basic insurance are outstanding.
