Thanks for your answer.
This seems to be really cheap. Do they have a telmed option? I think by calling a telmed phone you can same some many, because at a GP you always have to pay, even for 3 minutes chatting, haven't you?
So you are restricted to buy only at a Sunstore? I found only two of them in Bern:
Sun Store MM Im Zentrum Fitnesspark
Bernstrasse 114 3072 Ostermundigen
Sun Store Zentrum Bethlehem
Riedbachstrasse 8 3027 Bern
Do you have a personal experience with Assura?

About Telmed model I guess you are confusing. Telmed is an Health advice hotline (Telmed will not cure you!). After that you can consult your doctor. Telmed is a special insurance model. It's cheaper than the classical insurance model with Free choice of practicers, yes. There are other special (at low price) model. The main special model is general practitioner model (GP model). This model is cheap also. It is even cheaper than Telmed for almost all the insurance companies.
About Assura I am official insurance agent for their products.
About Sunstore. Assura has 3 insurance models. 1) Free choice of practicers 2) GP model 3) PharMed model. Pharmed model is GP model + you accept to buy your prescripts medications in a Sunstore. Two Sunstore are in Bern town and two others are outside town. If you don't want the restricted choice of parmacy you can perfectly choice GP model. And you can buy your prescrips medications in any pharmacy you want. Price of GP model is only approx. CHF 6.00 higher for adults than with Pharmed.
Herebelow explanations of Telmed by CSS and Helsana :
"24-hr emergency and medical advice
As a CSS client you can get advice by telephone on medical issues and emergencies in Switzerland or abroad from Medgate Telemedicine Center – free of charge, around the clock. A medical professional will discuss the most suitable next steps in your treatment with you and offer you comprehensive advice."
"Basic health insurance PREMED-24 (medical advice hotline)
PREMED-24 is an alternative insurance model within the compulsory basic health insurance. You receive the same medical benefits as under the standard statutory version. However, if you experience a medical problem you always consult the free advice hotline on 0800 773 633 and obtain their non-binding advice. Questions and uncertainties can often be cleared up over the phone with the result that a visit to the doctor is unnecessary in many cases. If you do still need to see a doctor you can make an appointment with a doctor of your choice afterwards."
