By law, people who work in Switzerland are insured against occupational accidents and diseases. Anyone who works at least eight hours per week for an employer is also insured for non-occupational accidents. This also applies to people who are registered as unemployed in Switzerland.
People who are not insured include children, students, housewives/househusbands, and pensioners. They are nevertheless subject to statutory accident coverage: They must also be insured against accidents via their compulsory basic health insurance.
In any case, it is worth checking your insurance cover and the agreed sums insured. After all, an accident can result in substantial expenses and not every insurance policy protects you against these.
People who work at least eight hours per week are insured against accidents (occupational and non-occupational accidents) via their employer’s insurance. People who do less than eight hours’ paid work per week are insured against accidents via their compulsory basic health insurance. Depending on the insurance coverage and insurance conditions, additional costs may be incurred or the recovery process may require additional services that are not covered. In this case, private accident insurance can help and can protect you from the financial consequences.
As its name suggests, private accident insurance is a type of insurance that insures you against accidents. Treatment is provided in a private hospital ward.
In the event of disability or partial disability, private accident insurance covers medical expenses and stays in a rehabilitation clinic or a psychiatric hospital. We also meet the costs of medical equipment or medications prescribed by a physician (up to CHF 2,000 per year).
Depending on the level of disability involved, other costs can be incurred, such as retraining or adaptations to the home or car. These costs are not covered by accident insurance. For greater financial security, a Capital insurance policy for accidents is advisable.
If accident protection is included with your basic health insurance, only some of the costs are covered. For example, medical emergencies are covered, but not transportation costs. In addition, outside the EU/EFTA countries, basic health insurance covers a maximum of twice the amount that would be due in Switzerland.
If you have insurance via your employer, it is worth taking a look at the insurance conditions. Pay attention to matters such as accommodation, coverage abroad, and the sums insured.
If you use our accident insurance, you are also insured for emergencies abroad. We likewise contribute to planned treatments abroad and repatriation.
An accident incurs costs for rescue, transportation, and medical treatment. How far you are covered for the costs incurred will depend on the insurance and the insurance coverage (basic insurance, employer) you have.
