What our customers have to say

Simone Isler
«SWICA is the best health insurer in Switzerland by far. I tried CSS, Arcosana, Concordia and others, but then I switched back to SWICA. Thanks to SWICA, instead of having more than 12 days of migraines a month, with the injection I now only have one day and my quality of life is so much better! SWICA is very straightforward, fast and has fantastic customer service!»
Jean-Claude Manghardt
«Attentive staff who respond to questions quickly and precisely, helpful advice (particularly in the magazine), a useful application featuring, for example, a simple procedure for submitting invoices and settling them promptly – these are just some of the reasons why I have been putting my trust in SWICA for more than 50 years without fail.»
Ingrid Jbilou
«I’ve been insured with SWICA for over forty years, and my two adult sons have been for their whole lives. I even registered my younger son, who was born in 1992, while I was still pregnant. SWICA may be a bit more expensive, as you often hear, but it’s not just the benefits that are perfect. So is the advice you get from the General Agency and over the phone. I’ve never had any problems in Switzerland or on trips abroad thanks to SWICA’s fast and straightforward processing. Given a choice I will always opt for SWICA as the health insurer for my family.»
Karin Both
«If I could choose an "Employee of the Year 2021", I would nominate Serkan Koca. He thinks for himself, scrutinises the policies closely and has given me really good advice. He is knowledgeable and very friendly. Excellent customer service. Great!»
Karin Arigoni
«In the autumn of 2013 I was diagnosed with breast cancer. It came as a massive shock to me. SWICA reassured me straight away and explained that it is a health insurance company that really covers the disease. Today I’m doing very well and I’m very grateful to SWICA.»
Nadine Wild
«I'd like to express my sincere thanks. I'm very happy with Swica's services, their caring, friendly and expert handling of my case, and the way they support their customers. I'd particularly like to thank Mr Salomon, who worked on my case in a capable, friendly and warm manner. He kept me well informed and always followed up with me promptly to provide updates without my having to ask (something I had never experienced before). I can recommend Swica Aadorf with absolutely no reservations.»
Daniel Longhi
«I would especially like to thank Hugo Garcia for his speed and professionalism in dealing with my supplementary insurance request. He is very easy to talk to and really listened to my needs. I'm very happy to have been in contact with him. I wish him every success in his work.»
Orlando De-Stefani
«I’ve been insured with SWICA for decades and I’m delighted. Praeventa is brilliant because I buy orthopaedic shoes for my damaged feet and have been able to do preventive physiotherapy. SWICA is so good that I’ve been rejecting the overtures of other insurers for years.»
Oliver Etter
«The people at SWICA are always very friendly and helpful when I contact them and provide me quickly with the information I need. I know that there are other insurers with lower rates, but I've always appreciated SWICA's service. The fact that I've been with them for years clearly says a lot.»
Patricia Atz-Breslaw
«I've been more than satisfied for many years. Last year the BENEVITA health platform helped me a lot. I took myself in hand and lost 20 kilos, and I’ve been able to keep the weight off ever since. Now all I have to do is stay as healthy as I am now and live till I’m at least a hundred.»
Vincent Faysse
«Digital insurance! I very much appreciate the services provided by the website and the mobile app: easy document transfer, a complete picture of your coverage, a wide range of information, etc.
It’s a real time-saver!»
Susan Danuser
«santé24 always gives very good, knowledgeable and friendly advice over the phone. Thank you!»
Kristina Crnogaj
«We were on holiday in Dubai. I began to feel ill during the very first night. I had heart problems, so we had to go to the hospital. sante24 was a great help to us during this time, because we didn’t understand everything in English. Thanks to sante24 I felt safe and cared for abroad.»
Peter Markstaller
«After various frustrating experiences with other health insurers the personal professional advice provided by the SWICA representative persuaded me, even though SWICA is somewhat more expensive than other insurers. I’m a really happy customer: great service, professional advice, clear invoicing... SWICA is going to have to do something special to get rid of me»
Jürg Suhner
«Even though I'm retired now, I still look after people in need and come into conversation with them. You would hardly believe the stories I hear about health insurers. About incorrect information, or promises which then can't be kept. It is people seeking advice who often end up short-changed – people who don't have the confidence, or sometimes the ability, to stand up for themselves.
With SWICA I've always received really competent advice – whether it was just a brief phone message, or if a doctor was also consulted – no fuss, no quibbles. But what really touches me is that, whether I'm phoning or asking in person at an agency counter, with SWICA you are taken seriously as a INDIVIDUAL.

I wish that all INDIVIDUALS could enjoy the valuable services that SWICA provides.»
Fabienne Grass
«I really love the invoice app. It’s so easy to use. And so quick.»
Florian Allenspach
«A health insurer shows its real qualities when you become ill. When I had surgery on my back seven years ago SWICA was always there for me. I benefited from preferential treatment in the hospital and straightforward processes. I can warmly recommend SWICA to anyone.»
Jacqueline Vera-Xiria Geiger
«The tips I received from the BENEVITA team made me aware of exactly what I had to change in my eating and exercise routines. It's true that I was taking a lot of exercise and eating appropriate foods, but the exercise I was doing turned out to be inefficient and I wasn’t eating enough protein. Now I’ve lost four kilos – my body is more toned and I’m pleased with how I look.»
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.»
