Re: Refused semi-private health insurance

I agree with everyone else.
When we first came here, we all applied for supplemental. One out of three of us was refused on the basis of a pre-existing condition. Some years later, that person had a hospitalization - unrelated to the condition - at the Unispital in Basel, in a huge private room, with just basic insurance and wonderful care.
In Basel, all of us have dealt with doctors and hospitals, including referrals to specialists in a different Kanton. Overall, we are very happy with the medical care here: absolutely no complaints.

I have to say I still have to see any benefit to the semi-private insurance for the two of us who have it, but, as previous poster mentioned, I will not drop it as we would likely never be eligible for it again.
