More than 90 per cent of general medical cases can be completely resolved with the video consultation.
How does eedoctors work?
If you are sick, you consult the doctor on duty at eedoctors via the app first. You can choose between a free chat consultation or a video consultation, which is subject to a charge.
If necessary, you will be given medical guidance, an e-prescription, a medical certificate or a referral. You can go to the ophthalmologist, gynaecologist or paediatrician directly without being referred by eedoctors.
How it works
- You can use eedoctors if you are insured on the casamed family doctor or euroline (Germany or France) basic insurance models.
- Download the eedoctors app from the App Store or Google Play. Sign up in the eedoctors app.
- Enter the information on your insurance card and your chosen payment method under “payment method”. For security reasons, eedoctors reserves a flat-rate amount of CHF 60 on your credit card at the start of each consultation.
- After the consultation, eedoctors will issue an invoice for any costs incurred and debit the amount via your specified payment method. Treatment costs no more than CHF 76.
- Sympany then refunds you the costs for the benefits received minus the franchise and deductible.
