It'll be in the region of 350 to 550 depending on doctor.
Either I misread or misunderstood.... but do you know what the franchise is?

It is the amount you have to pay yourself annually first, before the insurance kicks in. Then the insurance covers 90% of the cost and you cover the other 10%.

A franchise of 1'500 means, you should financially be able to cover 1500.- before the health insurance will cover costs. A franchise as high as that will result in a lower monthly premium. That's all.

Yes! It seems similar to the deductible in the US. Thank you for an estimate for the doctor visit as well. Assuming a doctor visit charge of 350-550 with the medicines costing ~60 CHF, the most I might end up paying would be ~600-650 for the year, which is still lower than the difference in annual premium for a 300 CHF franchise.... thats my logic to go with the higher franchise.
