Re: Pre-existing condition [from Sicko]

Thanks, but that brings other questions

Given that anyone, regardless of their health status, can get the basic health insurance plan, how does it compare to the US system?

I have read this link on comparis http://www.comparis.ch/krankenkassen...nfo_gv&lang=en, but I didn't see in any place if a treatment must be approved by the health insurance.

I read HMOs and GPs must be consulted beforehand, but in the case of the US system a family doctor recommends a treatment and then the insurance company can deny the request. Is it the same in Switzerland? Or is it just up to the doctor and the patient?

My questions may be quite naive... I am sorry about this...
