The BENEVITA app

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. Patricia Atz-Breslaw
Valuable preventive healthcare offers
Frederick has trouble sleeping. He knows that the amount of sleep we need changes as we get older. However, he doesn't want to simply accept the fact that he spends much of the night wide awake and is tired and bleary-eyed in the morning. He takes a sleep test on the SWICA website. The results confirm what he thinks and he calls the santé24 telemedicine service. The health advisor tells him about the mementor somnium online sleep program which helps people to fall asleep quickly and sleep soundly. The online registration process is easy and Frederick decides to try the programme out free of charge.
Since he's already talking to santé24, Frederick takes the opportunity to find out more about check-ups. The health advisor asks him about his family history and gives him advice about check-ups that may be useful for him. She also recommends the BENECURA app from SWICA. BENECURA offers evidence-based check-up advice and highlights the check-ups that are recommended under current guidelines.
Preventive measures and precautions
SWICA contributes up to 1'300 francs (find out more) per year under the COMPLETA FORTE, COMPLETA PRAEVENTA and OPTIMA supplementary insurance plans towards a range of preventive measures. These include check-ups, diabetes prevention, fall prevention, vaccinations, sleep programmes and smoking cessation courses.
Save money with alternative basic insurance models
SWICA has an extensive network of specialists who do their best to help its customers make a full recovery. The modern santémed Health Centres and SWICA partner practices offer medical care that focuses on quality and achieving results.
Under an alternative FAVORIT insurance model you choose your first point of contact for health problems – a SWICA partner practice, santé24 or a pharmacy – and enjoy attractive premium discounts.
Personal support for hospital stays
Lina's husband Matthias visits her in hospital shortly after the operation. She is surprised that he has brought along a letter from SWICA. Lina has INFORTUNA accident insurance from SWICA with worldwide private cover. In the letter, SWICA confirms that it will cover the medical expenses associated with the operation and offers to help Lina to organise the remainder of her hospital stay and her recuperation at home. The letter also contains Sabrina Abderhalden's contact details. She is Lina's personal contact person at SWICA and is familiar with her case. Lina gets in touch with Sabrina and together they agree that SWICA should provide Lina with a Home Attendant who will help out in the household in the days immediately after the accident. This is a massive relief for both Matthias and Lina because Matthias is very busy at work. As Matthias is unable to pick his wife up from hospital on the day she is discharged, SWICA organises a taxi for Lina.
Impressed by the all-round care that Lina has received from SWICA during and after her hospital stay, Matthias decides to upgrade his hospital insurance cover from general to semi-private. With SWICA you can do this up to the age of 69.
Lina and Matthias also decide to make living wills. They are aware now of how quickly something can go wrong. With a living will, they are certain that their wishes regarding medical treatment will be respected if they become unable to express themselves. In order to reduce the risk of suffering a fall at home, Lina also decides to take a closer look at the services offered by the Swiss Rheumatism Association – and recommended by SWICA – in relation to fall prevention.
Care management – personal support in the event of illness or accident
Martin, an old school friend of Lina's, has also had a fall. Martin is a self-employed joiner and not remotely interested in retirement. On the one hand, he wants to keep on working in his own business. On the other, his youngest daughter is still in full-time education and requires financial support. So it's important for him to remain healthy and active for years to come. He looks after his health and has been insured with SWICA for a long time now. He knows that in SWICA he has a reliable health partner who will give him the support he needs over the coming years. He benefits from this when he falls from a ladder at the age of 63 and breaks a number of bones. Fortunately, the medical prognosis is positive, even though Martin will have to undergo a long period of rehabilitation. In order to ensure the best possible treatment and a rapid recovery, he immediately alerts SWICA Care Management. The Care Manager shows great understanding for Martin's situation and immediately contacts his doctors, his daily sickness benefit insurer and a suitable rehabilitation clinic. Together, all those involved discuss the optimum treatment and plan Martin's return to working life. After completing his rehabilitation, Martin gradually increases his workload and is back to normal after about a year.

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.
