Requirement to take out insurance

All persons domiciled in Switzerland must take out health insurance. Every family member is insured individually, regardless of age. Anyone arriving in Switzerland with the intention of staying must take out such insurance within three months. Parents are allowed the same period in which to insure their newborn children. The insured may choose any health insurer he wants, and the insurer must accept him irrespective of his age and state of health, and without any reservations or qualifying period.
