How many days do I have to get health insurance sorted ?

I've just registered at the Rathaus after arriving in Switzerland and started working one week ago...
... I've just got forms for health insurance (pdfs) after getting a quote from en.comparis.ch website which I shall have to get someone to translate at work...
... I appreciate that I should have done this before arriving really, but it was a very rushed thing to leave UK and come here... I shall get this done and paid as quick as possible ( I hope to have a bank account in next few days )....
.... meanwhile, am I likely to prosecuted/imprisoned etc. for not yet having insurance in place ( I am doing my best to get it sorted asap! ).... or do I have a few days to do this ? I saw somewhere that you have
3 months, provided you backdate the payment, but I find this hard to
believe....


Cheers
