SWICA supports live-streaming courses and online coaching sessions with contributions of up to 800 francs per yearExercise and relaxation are essential for good health. That's why SWICA supports customers who have supplementary insurance (e.g. COMPLETA PRAEVENTA or OPTIMA) with contributions of up to 800 francs (find out more) towards the cost of many fitness, exercise, dance and health-related courses. This also applies to interactive live-stream classes and live video coaching sessions provided by SWICA-recognised gyms, course leaders 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.
