A student can not get student insurance???

Hello,

I'm non EU student in Geneva. I have been here since 2003. And now, I can not continue with my CSS student insurance 100chf/month. I have to pay as a Swiss 370chf/month, but my study is continuing in 2 years. They say every student have student insurance only up to 8 years.
What should I do? Could someone give me an advice, please?
Thank you so much

370 chf per month is not the cheapest for 'basic' health insurance - ours is more like 270chf...

Try asking the university student advice service ?

Can't you make it 3 years (doesn't matter for insurance, but for citizenship)?

Ask for cantonal health insurance benefits.

Or try to get a cheaper insurance, as suggested by Swisspea.


Still another option would be to get health insurance abroad, if (but only if) a bilateral agreement exists with that country.
