Rebate card from a savings program in Switzerland?

Hello everyone. I recently moved to Switzerland from the U.S. where I had a rebate card from the Janssen CarePath Savings Program that paid out-of-pocket costs for biologic infusion therapies (infliximab/Remicade) I get to maintain remission from Crohn's disease. I was wondering if there is an equivalent savings program available here that I could look into. Thanks for any help or suggestions!

Not to my knowledge. But isnīt the treatment covered by your health insurance?

Yes, but there is still a rather expensive out-of-pocket cost.

Even if you go for a franchise of CHF 300?

Re: Rebate card from a savings program in Switzerland?

If you go for a 300 CHF deductible/franchise then your out of pocket will be about 1000.

You pay the 300 and then 10% of all your other costs up to chf 700 ( meaning that you’ve accumulated 7000 of costs).

In the meantime, all your other medical costs add to this - assuming you have blood tests and doctor visits.

My guess is that in the US, your doctor visits, blood tests, etc came out of one pot and your meds came out of another, but here it’s all lumped together and you pay 10% of everything up to CHF 7000.

It might be less expensive than the US.
