Coronavirus self-tests 

Since 7 April 2021, five free coronavirus self-tests have been available every 30 days to insured persons resident in Switzerland. You can source these tests from any pharmacy by showing your insurance card. All associated costs are settled directly between the pharmacies and the health insurers. SWICA is then reimbursed by the federal government, which means that the administrative burden for insured persons is zero.
