Re: Health insurance for part-time residents

Again this depends on your nationality and exactly what you're doing here. If an EU national who holidays here for less than 90 days then you should be covered for emergency treatment in Switzerland by your home country's health scheme via your EHIC card. A non-EU would need travel insurance.

An exchange student isn't a tourist, but a resident so would need to take out Swiss health insurance cover, although they may be able to get an exemption again depending on nationality/home country's health scheme.
