Kidney Transplant

hi there, I will be placed in Swiss for a long term project by my current employer in near future. Although I am much excited to enjoy the Swiss quality life, I am worried about my medication costs over there.. Actually, I had undergone renal transplantation surgery 10 years back and doing great now. However, I need to take medications life long. I just wonder whether the compulsory insurance in Swiss will cover my existing medical bills i.e. post-transplant care. I am aware through online search that Swiss compulsory insurance can not be denied by the insurance provider irrespective of health condition. But the medicines I am currently taking are relatively costlier, I would appreciate if any of you clarify my above doubts.. Great thanks in advance..

Re: Kidney Transplant

Why not contact one of the health insurers and ask them. Some will speak to you in English if language is a problem.

The country is called Switzerland, by the way. Not Swiss.

It would be like saying:

I live in American
You live in English
She lives in French
We live in Spanish
You live in Icelandic
They live in Iranian

So, not correct at all.

Re: Kidney Transplant

Generally basic health insurance should cover your situation. It provides very broad coverage and no exclusion of pre-existing conditions is possible. You may have difficulty getting supplemental insurance, but that isn't indispensable.
