insurance for student's spouse

Hi,

While student insurance (e.g. from swisscare) is a lot cheaper, I was wondering if similar benefit is provided under any plan/insurance for obtaining an insurance for a student's non-working/non-studying spouse.

Any pointers would be appreciated.

Thanks!

Re: insurance for student's spouse

when we arrived (husband post-doc) I wasn't working or studying, we went to an insurance broker linked to the university and she sorted out a student-type insurance policy for both of us, which was cheaper than a normal basic insurance. Once I found a job I had to get a normal insurance policy. So it could be worth asking if there's a similar advisor/broker linked your university who can advise you of how it works there, it could be different.

Swisscare used to insure spouses of researchers / students but stopped doing so two to three years ago - maybe the law changed at about that time...
