Compulsory Swiss basic insurance from your health insurance provider

The same benefits for everyone across Switzerland

If you compare Swiss health insurers, you’ll find that the standard benefits in all basic insurance models are the same. This is what the law sets out. That’s why, when you change your health insurer and come to Sympany, we cover all the benefits under compulsory basic insurance.

Cost contribution

You will bear a small proportion of the costs yourself each year in accordance with the law (excess and deductible). You will pay 100% of the excess costs yourself. The excess can be selected each year and amounts to at least CHF 300 per year for adults. Only if the costs surpass the excess will the basic insurance take over – minus your deductible of 10% (up to a maximum of CHF 700 for adults per year). More information on cost contribution >

Tip: If you increase your excess share, your health insurance premiums will decrease significantly: More here >
