Re: Refused semi-private health insurance

However, I've been on public insurance with Swica and had major and minor surgery. I've never really seen the point of private/semi-private. There's only ever been one other person in my room.
I'd say that one of the reasons for taking out (semi)private insurance is for the free choice of doctors and for treatment in certain private hospitals (for example, Hirslanden group), though this can also be accomplished by some cheaper supplementary options. You're absolute right that especially for semiprivate coverage, there isn't too much different to general ward in terms of the number of roommates
