Re: Health Insurance - first 3 months...once again

We were advised by the Zug Immigration office that it is a legal requirement to have insurance from the first day of the validity of our permits. This however worked to our advantage.

I arrived in Aug, 36 weeks pregnant, on a tourist visa. Had to pay for all gynaecologist appointments and the subsequent birth in September. Issued permits in October but back dated to our initial date of arrival in Aug. Insurance had to be back dated to August as advised.

On presenting my insurance docs to the Gemeinde's office I was told to take same to hospital together with my banking details. A little over 2 weeks later the hospital had paid back all the money I had paid for consultations and delivery. The insurance foot the whole bill.
