When the Health Insurance must start?

Hello everyone,

We moved to CH in the mid of July, and we've been told that we have 3 months to arrange an insurance. So in August I had contacted an independent agent, and he made a contract for us (with Avanex, if it depends) from September 1st. But now we've received an invoice for a premium from August 1st.

So how it is? When we have to start our insurance?


Thanks,

Jozef.

As the insurance is compulsory from the first day you arrive in Switzerland, in theory you should be paying from the 1st of July.
However, as long as you sign up within the first 90 days, some companies are more supple than others and will "let you off" with the first month or even two months depending on when you sign your contract.

It's something of a grey area but in theory, you should pay from the first day you enter the country.

Hope this helps
