Re: Birth experience in Swiss hospitals/clinics -advice/tips/stories?

Complimentary insurance is the term that my insurance company uses to describe the insurance option about the basic which will cover your stay in a private clinic etc, etc.

I am positive that you can come to CH pregnant and get the higher cover as I know of quite a few expats who have done this. You get what you pay for in terms of insurance, what i mean is that if you arrive pregnant than you can get the higher, complimentary insurance option, so long as you pay the higher premium. It is probably worth it though as i have priced the option of using basic insurance and still going to a clinic and the difference you would have to pay is 5400chf extra, over and above what the basic insurance covers, for the hospital stay and this does not include the OB\GYNs rate for the delivery.
