Sympany pays back surpluses in basic and supplementary insurance to customers for third time in a row

Since 2016, health insurance companies have been permitted by law to pay back surpluses from compulsory basic insurance to policyholders. While most health insurance providers keep any such surpluses in reserves, Sympany is – for the third time in succession – reimbursing policyholders in cantons where a surplus has been generated for the excess premium payments they have made. Surpluses in supplementary insurance are also being given back to customers, in this case for the sixth time in a row. Read more


Sympany continues to grow and achieves excellent annual results for 2017

Sympany looks back at an outstanding year. The increase in the number of private policyholders is particularly pleasing, amounting as of 1 January 2018 to a total of over 11,000 more basic insurance policyholders than in the previous year. Sympany’s profits have increased by CHF 20.3 million to CHF 76.0 million. Sympany allocated CHF 21.3 million of these to the surplus fund, which was considerably more than in previous years. By issuing surplus payouts, Sympany wants to share this success with its customers. Read more
