LAA, LAI or LAM : What do they mean?

I saw in an insurance flyer the sentence "... does not apply to illnesses covered by LAA, LAI or LAM". What does that mean exactly? So far I found out LAA is related to accidents.

LAA = accident insurance
LAI = disability insurance
LAM = military insurance (you are covered when on duty)

LAA (Loi Assurance Accident)=Accident
LAMAL (Loi Assurance Maladie)= Illness
LAI (Loi Assurance Invalidité)=Disabled
LAM (Loi assurance Militaire)=army

Those seconds count.

Sickness insurance is normally written as LAMal in FR (mix of upper/lower case). It is KVG in DE.

EDIT: Everyone in CH must have health insurance and accident insurance. If you are working, the accident insurance (LAA) is covered by the company. If not working, you need to have your own accident insurance. It is normally purchased at the same time/same insurance company as the LAMal.
