Alternative medicine: what does Sympany pay for?

  • Supplementary outpatient insurance policies contribute to complementary medical treatment by recognised therapists, medicines not covered by statutory insurance, alternative remedies and more.
     
  • Contributions vary depending on supplementary insurance. Example: from plus, 50% of treatment costs up to CHF 3,000 is refunded by Sympany per calendar year, while from premium, up to CHF 6,000 is refunded. You can find an overview of all contributions here (in German).
     
  • Basic insurance covers treatments in acupuncture, anthroposophic medicine, traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), classic homoeopathy and phytotherapy (herbal medicine) – but only if the treatment is medically necessary and administered by a doctor (Dr. med.). You contribute to the costs with the franchise and deductible. Doctors are not displayed in the therapist search.
