Swisscare student health insurance Geneva

Hi everyone,
I just received my residency permit. I am a first year student at the University of Geneva, and I have to choose a insurance company for the compulsory health insurance (LAmal ?). I found on the forum people mentioning http://www.swisscare.com/ for students ( 80chf per month). Will the Geneva Cantonal authorities accept it ? The company wasn't on the list the authorities sent me.
So I would be very thankful if anyone could tell me if this company is ok or if I should choose the other listed companies who are far more expensive.

Thank you all

Re: Swisscare student health insurance Geneva

Are you PhD student or Mater/Bachelor student? Since PhD students usually have an employment contract with the University (and thus a salary) some cantonal authorities may not accept Swisscare. For other students without salary, Swisscare should be fine. The best thing to do is contact directly Swisscare, explain your situation and they can provide you with the right information. (or point out where to get it)

Edit: For PhD's, they have some info here: https://www.swisscare.com/en/news-de...ss-regulation/
