Anyone know about prescribed baby formula?

Hello all!
I am currently living in the UK, but moving to Bern in 2 weeks time with my husband and 3-month-old daughter.
My daughter is allergic to cow's milk and needs Nutramigen, a hypoallergenic formula which is prescribed by the GP here in the UK (so it's completely free for us).
I heard that this milk is VERY expensive, so I'm worried that we will have to pay for it, or part of it, in CH.
Does anyone know how this works in CH? Do docs prescribe this and is there a prescription charge or partial payment for the parents?
Does it depend on what kind of health insurance we decide to get?
I'm trying to get a massive supply here before leaving.... but the GP will only prescribe a few weeks' worth of the formula.
Thanks for any useful comments!!!
