I've not gone to one here before, what is the usual situation? do you just give them your health insurance information etc or do they just bill you and then its up to you to deal with it for the insurance?
Depends on the doctor and/ or your insurer. Some doctors bill some insurers direct, other times they'll send you the bill and you pay it then submit it to the insurer for reimbursement.

If it's down to you to pay, there's usually a pretty generous time period, allowing you to claim the money from the insurer before paying it out yourself providing you get the claim in as soon as poss.

An average doctor consult of around 10 mins should cost in the region of 50 CHFs.
