The health insurance system in SwitzerlandSwitzerland's insurance system has three main elements: mandatory basic insurance, voluntary hospitalisation insurance, and other voluntary supplementary insurance options.
Supplementary insurance plans, which meet the needs of each individual, can be purchased to provide access to additional medical services (e.g. complementary medicine, contributions towards health promotion activities such as gym memberships, or higher contributions towards glasses and contact lenses).
Hospitalisation insurance can be taken out to provide greater freedom when choosing a hospital and for additional benefits during a hospital stay.
SWICA has branches in every region of Switzerland. Qualified customer advisors find the best possible insurance cover for each individual. It makes good sense to ask for professional, individual and personal advice.
