Health insurer contributions to gym memberships

Exercising with SWICA is definitely worthwhile

SWICA supports your preventive and health-promoting activities relating to exercise, nutrition and wellbeing. Because fitness keeps you mentally and physically fit, SWICA contributes up to 800 francs (learn more) per year towards the cost of your gym membership with ACTIV FITNESS.

How your fitness contribution breaks down

As part of its commitment to health promotion and preventive healthcare, SWICA covers 50% of the costs from your COMPLETA PRAEVENTA supplementary plan, up to 500 francs per calendar year (up to 300 francs per type of activity). OPTIMA supplementary insurance additionally covers 90% of the cost exceeding this amount, up to 300 francs per calendar year.
