Re: Adoption of grandchild

Medical Insurance

This is not relevant to the Swiss authorities if the boy lives outside of Switzerland. It is, however, obligatory for all who reside in Switzerland and would therefore also be so for the boy as soon as he lives in Switzerland. He would not be exempt, for example, because he has access to the UK National Health Insurance.

Your access to medical insurance for him, from your scheme from abroad, would become relevant to the Swiss authorities him only once you could prove
the boy's eligibility in that scheme, and
that your scheme provides at least as good a cover as does the compulsory Swiss basic medical cover (in German "Grundversicherung", "allgemein").

In other words, if the Swiss authorities deem the cover of your foreign medical insurer to be less comprehensive than the Swiss basic, the boy (and for that matter you, too) will still have to buy the Swiss compulsory insurance.
