Health Insurance Providers

Hi,

I have recently started work in Basel and need to find health insurance before the 3 month deadline. I know of 2 providers, Helsana and Sympany. i would like to know if anyone has been with both or with one and knows somebody with the other to provide a comparison. I'm aware of comparis.ch and I am not looking for price comparison. I just mean their reliability and conveneince if I have to rely on them for anything.

Thanks,
Kevin

If your young & healthy take a large excess so you will never have a payout & save money. I am with Avanex which is actually Helsana when they write letters in English

Re: Health Insurance Providers

I am with Swica, as is my family, and I've never had any issues whatsoever - even with >50'000CHF worth of surgery. (Yes, it's my fault your premiums are so high).

Re: Health Insurance Providers

We are also with Swica and quite happy. They seems to be very fair and we never have any issues getting claims paid. We tried another one at first but it took them so long just to get our cards sent to us that we cancelled and went to Swica. Until now, no real complaints.

Re: Health Insurance Providers

I can recommend sanitas. I`ve been with them for 5 years now and never had any problems...
