Health insurance gives you access to good medical treatment in the event of illness or accident. All persons in Switzerland must have health insurance.

  • Register yourself and your family with a Krankenkasse as soon as possible (no later than 3 months after your entry into Switzerland).
  • Once you have received the Versicherungspolice , you must send a copy of it to the municipal administration. 
  • Basic insurance is compulsory for adults and children. It covers the costs of doctor's visits, hospital treatment and medically prescribed medication.
