Health Insurance - Praemienverbilligung

I am not sure how this works, but we are an unmarried couple with three children, I work my partner doesn't. Every year we claim a rebate on our health insurance which is worth CHF 630 per child, so a nice little sum for three children. I am just filling out the paperwork for this year, but I have no idea why we get this rebate. I am sure that other families in a simular position do not know about it, I earn a good wage, but my partner doesn't work. Does anyone know why we get this rebate. It is to be claimed from the Gemeinde where you were on the 1st January.

It is part of Swiss social security. If your partner worked, or married you, with the high salary, the supplement would go down or disappear. Remember the supplement depends on the income during the previously completed tax year.

The supplement is paid by central government, but is administered by the Canton where you live.

I believe my salary to be above the average Swiss, so if I can claim this rebate with my non working partner, there is a good chance that you can also.
