Overview of health promotion and preventive healthcare offering

SWICA actively supports those who are committed to learning about and maintaining their health. That's why SWICA makes contributions of up to 800 francs* towards activities relating to health promotion and preventive healthcare.

*SWICA contributes 50% of the costs up to 500 francs per calendar year (up to 300 francs per type of activity) from the COMPLETA PRAEVENTA supplementary insurance plan and 90% of the costs exceeding this amount up to 300 francs per calendar year from OPTIMA towards health-related services provided by SWICA-recognised providers. (Here you can find three examples of how SWICA's contribution is calculated.)

What you have to do
To qualify for these contributions, simply send us the relevant documentation for each activity (e.g. course confirmations, invoices and receipts, etc.). SWICA contributes towards the cost of the following health-related services as long as they are carried out by SWICA-recognised partners and providers.

Are online offers also supported?
Yes! SWICA also contributes towards the cost of interactive livestreaming courses run by SWICA-recognised fitness centres, instructors and dance schools in Switzerland. Dance instructors and their students communicate by video or audio to ensure that the quality of the lessons is similar to that in a dance studio. Recorded/downloaded video lessons and online courses where there is no interaction are not therefore supported.

«SWICA pays 800 francs towards my gym membership. And it offers the BENEVITA bonus programme which helps people who enjoy exercise and have a health-conscious lifestyle to keep their premiums down. I would recommend SWICA to anyone who is interested in exercise and health.»
Jennifer Hoeffleur
«SWICA supports me in my efforts to live a healthy lifestyle. When I was trying out Bodypump with a friend, she told me that SWICA made generous contributions to her fitness club membership. So I also switched to SWICA, and am very happy I did. SWICA also provides support in the form of the BENEVITA bonus programme.»
Loris Hausammann
«I do a lot of sport in my spare time, so it’s important to me to have an insurance partner which supports me financially on that front. The range of services provided by SWICA is transparent and easy to understand, which suits me very well. I also like SWICA’s friendly professional staff and the easy-to-use invoice app.»
