Some tariffs for health care and consultations in Switzerland

  • Consultation with a general practitioner: 110 Fs (around 74 €)
  • Checking and scaling at a dentist: 300 Fs (around 276,04 €)

If you intend to reside in Switzerland, it is preferable to be affiliated to the country's social security system. To do so, you are required to pay a contribution, but also to pay a medical deductible per calendar year (about 300 Swiss francs).

Remember that certain types of care are not reimbursed! This is the case for dental and optical care, which is why it is worth taking out private health insurance such as World-Pass in order to be reimbursed 100% of your actual costs abroad.

If it is a temporary stay in Switzerland, it would be ideal to ask your insurance company for your European Health Insurance Card 15 days before the date of your departure abroad. This card allows you to be covered by Swiss social security in the same way as a resident.
