Health Insurance companies who work in English Language

Did anyone ever compile a list of which health insurers work in English (Customer Service, Documentation)? Some threads mention this incidentally but I couldn't track down a compilation.

I've started the process looking at this area and this would be a useful list to have/ help to build.

Yes

CSS
Swica
Visana have always provided me with an english option, both speaking face to face and in any Formulare filled out.

No

Assura
Sanagate is a NO (although they reply to my emails in English)

Partial

Helsana is sort of.. Application forms, some advertising stuff and some documentation is in EN.. But once you sign up it's all in FR (in my part of the country)
Always been in French with Group Mutuel but their website is available in English. Mind you I've never tried in English so I may be doing them a disservice.
