Re: Moving to Swizerland- health insurance
The amount you end up paying will depend on the town/ area you live. We now pay just over CHF 700 for 2 adults and 2 kids. The insurance of the kids has a CHF 0 deductible with a good dental plan, mine has a CHF 500 deductible. OH has a slightly higher one.
One good tip I read here on EF, was to get a lower franchise (or deductible) if you are a woman, as we are more likely to visit the doctor (gynae exams, etc.). Another tip was to check what the monthly amount is if you go for CHF 500 and 1000 CHF deductible. In my case, the CHF 500 deductible costed me CHF 20 more per month (than the CHF 1000). So in a year, I was paying CHF 240 more, but it still meant that I only had to pay CHF 500 (plus the usual 10% extra) if I had a claim, so in effect I could potentially save a few hundred francs.
And do call them, rather than do things online. Most companies have English speaking teams, and are quite helpful. That way, you can also get a good picture of what you are "buying".
