Individual and comprehensive SME insurance
For self-employed individuals and SMEs with foresight: Whenever an employee is absent, it costs your company money and resources, and also means that your other employees have to pick up the slack. SWICA provides you with optimum cover for the financial consequences of illness and accident, and offers individual solutions for daily allowance insurance and accident insurance. Our services are rounded off by occupational health management that is perfectly tailored to your company's needs.
There are over 30'000 companies insured with SWICA who are satisfied with their cover and benefit from a comprehensive range of insurance services.
As an employer, you are required by the Federal Accident Insurance Act (UVG) to insure your employees against accidents and occupational illnesses. The UVG insurer covers the statutory costs for treatment in the general ward of a hospital plus any follow-up and spa treatments. The same applies to the assumption of the cost of loss of earnings for employees who are unable to work due to an accident or occupational illness. Starting on the third day after the accident, the UVG insurer pays 80% of the salary up to a maximum of CHF 148'200.
It can be very expensive if an employee has an accident. The cost of hospital treatment, repatriation, therapy, loss of earnings, pension contributions and reintegration measures can quickly add up. The benefits paid out by compulsory accident insurance under the Accident Insurance Act (UVG) are limited. Supplementary accident insurance (UVG-Z) therefore offers additional benefits.
Taking out daily sickness benefits insurance for your employees is voluntary. As an employer, however, you are legally obliged to continue paying the salaries of employees who are ill or have had an accident for a certain period of time.
You can transfer this risk to SWICA on pre-defined terms. In this way, you can protect the earnings of employees who are unable to work for an extended period of time due to illness.This makes it possible for your company to budget for the risk of ongoing salary payments.
Mandatory health insurance covers your basic needs in cases of illness, accident or maternity. With the six alternative insurance plans from SWICA and PROVITA, you and your employees benefit from the best value for money and can save up to several hundred francs per year. The only difference between this model and a STANDARD plan is the choice of contact point. The benefits package remains the same. The basic insurance plan benefits include conventional treatments and complementary medicine, hospital stays in the general ward, emergency transport, and search and rescue operations and treatments abroad in emergencies.
