Normal Prices for Health Care

Hello, Forum.

Wondering what the average prices for a Dental Checkup and Medical Checkup in Switzerland (Geneva Area).

Also, is University of Geneva a good University?

Re: Normal Prices for Health Care

I doubt very much that anyone can help you as each person might know what they pay, but will hardly likely to know what other people pay to make an average - and nothing is 'normal' here.

A dental check-up - with Xrays? without? how many dental problems have you already?

A health check-up? The sort that I might have? Ah you are still breathing? Yes. Good. Your heartbeat is OK, blood pressure OK, your blood is red; urine shows nothing abnormal. Fit as a fiddle!
Or are you talking about ETKM? (Every test known to man).

University - ditto.

Re: Normal Prices for Health Care

For dental check-up- there was a recent comparison of prices in Romandie in a Consumer magazine very recently. I'll look it up and come back to you - must be here somewhere- just have to find it!

Edit: found it! Bon à savoir magazine January 2011. www.bonasavoir.ch

check up, clean + 2 diagnostic x-rays: huge variation in cost
Cheapest was Dental Budget in Neuchatel: 50fr then it doubles for the majority- most expensive Dental Center Fribourg: 128.70

Well, Isn't their an Average Cost for a Basic Medical Checkup i.e "Are you breathing?"

With Dental Check-Ups I also mean like Teeth Whitening and Cleaning.

Uh.. No... Like others have said, price varies from dentist to dentist... as does the quality of service... Best thing to do check around various dentists in your area, as well as check with your health insurance co.. Although you may not have dental insurance, the can reccommend who they work with...

A basic visit to a GP (family doctor) is 100CHF. This will include taking your blood pressure, listening to your chest- very basic stuff. Any blood tests, etc, will be extra.
