Any supplementary insurance while pregnant


Moved from UK to CH. hence, less idea about things here.

Got the basic insurance at the start for me and wife. Wife is pregnant now and figured out that with basic insurance I can not choose the hospital, room etc.

We wish to go to Hirslanden for delivery but my insurance says that only public hospitals might be eligible only.

Hence, we wish to top up to supplementary insurance if possible. But from what I know is that I can not while my wife is already pregnant.

My questions:

Is there any insurance company where I can get supplementary for wife while she is pregnant?

Can we go to Hirslanden with basic insurance ?

Thanks for your replies.

Re: Any supplementary insurance while pregnant

You can get supp. insurance for your wife while she is pregnant, but it will exclude all claims pregnancy related (in particular choice of hospital and room) for 12 months.
You can go to any hospital you like for the pregnancy, you have to pay for it yourself though.
On the bright side the public hospitals here are just fine
