Health insurance for the last 3 months of 2012?

I am in the process of getting quotes for health insurance, and have one that I'm happy to sign, but it only starts in Jan 2013? I've had an online quote from Comparis.ch as well, same thing, they seem defaulted to start - for new entrants to Switzerland at least - on Jan 1st 2013, and I can't see anywhere on any of the sites I'm looking at where the start date can be modified to start ASAP.

Is anyone else in the same boat? Any idea how you can modify the start date? I guess the 2013 rates have recently been released, and that's what has been calculated on my offer.

Can I call up the insurer who sent me the offer to see if this can be modified? I'm happy to do this, I just wanted to see if anyone else had faced the same situation recently.

Don't fancy being w/o health insurance for the next 3 months!

Thanks in advance for any advice

Yep, just ask and they'll tell you what the rates are for the rest of 2012. And your health insurance will be backdated to the date you entered Switzerland anyway, so you won't be without health insurance
