Bridge health insurance when moving out of the country

Hi,

We (myself, wife, and baby) will be leaving the country early August, thus we will cancel our health insurance at end of August. We'll be traveling for 1 month to my home-country (EU) and then to my new job mid-September in UK.

This leaves me 2 weeks without a health insurance. Which for myself, I don't mind so much, however, we have a small baby, and I feel a bit awkward being -uncovered.

Travel insurances have a strange clause about the country of residence (which will not be Switzerland since we deregister) and mention they are complementary to the obligatory insurance. Back home, no company would give an insurance for 1 month.

Any ideas how to bridge this gap? Should I ask my Swiss company to pay for September as well, even though I'll not be resident?

Thanks!

They wouldn't cover you if you're not a resident.

I'm not sure you can bridge the gap, but maybe look for worldwide insurance or something like this.

You could leave the apartment, & have your post held back at the post office. Then come back and abmelden (Un register) at end of September. Nothing illegal in that. Your Swiss health insurance covers you for European emergencies.

I know, however, to deregister they ask my wife to be present. So, traveling all to Switzerland to deregister is a bit too expensive...

I'll try to get a sort-of global insurance first.
