Medical bills - which year's franchise?

I should really know this after all these years... I've had a doctor's bill just arrive, dated 2011 and obviously payable in 2011 but for treatments in 2010. Will the Krankenkasse set it against my 2010 franchise or 2011? I'd rather the latter as I've just reduced my franchise

Is that meant to substantiate what you say or is it just spam?

If you're right, then I'm a happy bunny, but I hate to say a non-useful advertising link purporting to substantiate your post raises question marks in my mind. Sorry!

In my case it was the year, when I visited doctor, not when I paid..

Re: Medical bills - which year's franchise?

Yes, it is the year in which the treatment was done - not the year in which you receive the bill.

The dates will be on the bill so your insurance company will subject it to your 2010 franchise unfortunately.

There's no getting away from this I'm afraid. It's yet another of those very clear-cut things in Switzerland!

Gynaecologist bill

hello

Can some one tell me if I visited the Gynaecologist in December 2010 and the bill arrived in January 2011. Should I attach in 2010 insurance or 2011.

Any help would be great?

Thanx in advance.

Re: Gynaecologist bill

The bill should go in the time that the "service was administered", i.e. 2010.
