General Health Evaluation / Check Up

Hi.

I want to go for a general examination and get some tests (e.g. blood) to make sure I am in good general health.

Does anyone have a recommendation where I could get this done in Zurich? Or if they are overly expensive here (don't think its covered by my healthcare), I'd consider going over the border to Germany.

Thanks!

Dont quote me on this, but i was not feeling good and went to my doctor around a year and a half ago and asked him to take a blood test to see if there were any irregularities. He also checked my lung, liver and heart. This was covered by my health insurance.

BUPA in the UK do Well-man-Well-Woman examinations. But speak to your Doctor, he may well advise and prescribe a plan of action meaning it could be covered by Medical Insurance. (Walk in and say everything hurts, read up on a symptom for everything you want checked and tell him you have those symptoms). Also, preventative screening is more economical than post-symptom care, so it may well be covered.

Re: General Health Evaluation / Check Up

About six months ago, I had my blood checked for "anything and everything" by my family doctor here, after I had told her that I had been feeling really tired for no obvious reason. So they checked my iron levels, thyroid, etc. etc. -- and it was all covered by my health insurance (Sanitas).

Was it covered by your basic or suplementary insurance?
