Military insurance: Premiums

Military insurance is free for insured persons, with one exception.  

Professional military staff pay a premium that must cover at least 80% of the costs of treatment in the event of illness. For non-occupational accidents, they pay the same premium as other employees of the Confederation.

Who pays a MI premium?

Professional military staff and federal civil defence instructors pay a military insurance premium for non-occupational diseases and accidents.

Insurance during retire

Once they retire, professional military staff and federal civil defence instructors also pay a premium if they choose optional military insurance cover instead of health insurance.
