hospita private health insurance in a nutshell

Privately insured means that you have taken out supplementary hospital insurance that covers the costs of a stay in the private ward (private room) of a hospital. It also offers a free choice of doctor and hospital throughout Switzerland. Of all the departments in the hospital, the private ward (as the name suggests) is the one with the greatest degree of privacy and the highest level of comfort.

The main difference lies in the ward in which you are accommodated in the hospital: in the semi-private ward, you will be in a twin room, while in the private ward you will have a room to yourself for even more quiet and comfort. In addition, private health insurance pays higher contributions, for example towards home help or spa treatments.
