3 Mandatory Health Insurance in Switzerland
In accordance of the Federal Act on Health Insurance every person domiciled in Switzerland must take out health insurance with a recognized Swiss Healtch insurance company within three months of taking residence in Switzerland.
Exemption from compulsory health insurance is only granted to limited categories of persons (students, trainees, PhD-students and - depending on the country of origin - academic guests) upon request. However, their insurance in foreign countries must cover the requirements of the compulsory Swiss Health Insurance Act.
For EU-Citizens only: Please bring with you the European Health Insurance Card if available.
