Re: Insurance covering psychologist

View Post
Hi all,
I am a student who will be in Zurich over the summer. I have depression, but it seems that most plans don't cover psychologist/therapy treatment. I will not be affiliated with the university. Does anyone know of specific plans that will cover therapy, or where I can have access to free/reduced-price therapy?
Any treatment that your doctor deems necessary will be covered. The exact terms of your insurance will determine whether you can go direct to a psychiatrist or if you'll need a GP referral, but a psychologist who isn't a doctor will need a prescription from your doctor, just as would a physiotherapist or similar.
