Visiting a doctor before organizing health insurance

We moved to Basel a the beginning of the month so still haven't organized our health insurance.

For the last few days the girlfriend has been suffering from some terrible back pain and it's finally time we gave in and arranged for a doctor to take a look for her.

She started work this week and hasn't had a chance to register with the canton yet. We could get that sorted today if we had to but for now we need to work out the best way to get her a doctor visit.

Any ideas as to how we proceed?

Re: Visiting a doctor before organizing health insurance

You really must read the Forum. Your chosen insurance will be backdated to the day you first registered here.

Going to the doctor can be done at any time, you pay the doctor, and maybe claim back from the insurance some of the money....
