Re: Should I get supplementary insurance?

Pretty sure you cannot get Adderall here. Ritalin is not a problem on the basic. Adults are even covered for Ritalin. But, you probably will need to have a diagnosis, especially as an adult. That could cost as much as chf 2500-3000, not sure how it's covered. If you have one from another country that might be ok (I had a fairly comprehensive one from the US), but I still had to see a specialist when I lived in Bern. Now in Zurich, my GP read my diagnosis packet and prescribes my Ritalin.

I moved here when I was too old to qualify for supplemental. I've been treated for breast cancer and had knee replacements. The care has been great, and when I was hospitalised for the knees, I was in a double, which was fine, and a triple, which was not quite as fine - but it was 35 degrees outside. However, if you might want some of the special things such as gym membership, alternative medicine, and more choice with doctors in hospital, apply for supplemental.
