Health insurance: Supplementary insurance

Supplementary insurance is governed by the Insurance Policy Act (VVG), together with the general terms and conditions of insurance. Such insurance is optional, and insurers are not obliged to offer cover. 

If policyholders have any questions about supplementary insurance, they should contact their health insurer directly. Legal queries should be addressed to the supervisory authority responsible for private insurance:

Swiss Financial Market Supervisory Authority (FINMA), Laupenstrasse 27, CH-3003 Bern Hotline for enquiries, Monday to Friday 8:00 – 12:00: +41 (0)31 327 98 88;
