Re: Access to Remicade in Switzerland

I've received Remicade for nearly 10 years for Ulcerative Colitis(it's typically administered every 7/8 weeks as an infusion over 2/3 hours in an hospital).

You should be ok if it's already prescribed. The best thing is to talk to one of the health insurance companies before you arrive (I'm with SWICA and have always
found them helpful... also if you're coming to join a big company they may already have a link set up with an insurance provider.)

It 'costs' around 4k chf per hospital visit which will be paid directly by your insurance company. But talk to them first about the best way to handle your premiums and deductibles.
