Esther Tabirri
«Both my parents and I have been insured with SWICA for our entire lives. We have never had any problems or experienced any disappointments. We couldn’t be happier!»
Mattia Baldi
«My family and I trust in SWICA. I was a professional ice hockey player for 14 years and accidents were the order of the day. Our medical team always looked after us extremely well. After my sports career ended, I decided that I wanted the same care and security for my family and myself. With SWICA I’ve found the ideal partner for my family.»
Nick Schoberth
«I’m never really ill, but during my summer holidays the SWICA helpline provided me with rapid straightforward help, even though I was abroad at the time and in a different time zone.»
Adrian van Velsen
«For a long time I resisted the idea of switching to a new health insurer. Then I gave SWICA a chance and was blown away: I had never experienced such quick, personal and professional contact in the 20 years that I was with my old insurer. This initial contact with SWICA confirmed for me that I’ve now found the right health insurer.»
Aike Festini
«I do a CrossFit workout three or four times a week, enjoy swimming and love relaxing at spas. With my active lifestyle, SWICA is the ideal choice for me because it has something to offer in all these areas. I also like the straightforward digital information exchange.»
Judith Frei
«...my first contact with SWICA was fantastic. Because I (56) wasn’t able to find out online whether my current GP was on SWICA’s doctors’ list, I called SWICA. The friendly lady I spoke to immediately offered to guide me through the internet pages until we found what I had been looking for... A really "human" service like this is wonderful! And that’s why I am switching to SWICA now after 35 years with EGK...»

«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.»
