Is "Swiss Advisor Insurance SA" a valid option for Ph.D. students of EPFL?

As a new Ph.D. student of EPFL, who is about to be paid 3000 CHF per month, I'm just looking for the most affordable insurance plan.

I do know that super cheap plans, like the 65 CHF plan of Swiss care, don't work for me since my gross salary exceeds 3500 CHF per month. However, I just found a company called "Swiss Advisor Insurance SA" which claims that even Ph.D. students can use its 45 CHF package, as you may check here:

http://www.advisor-swiss.com/insuran...udent/?lang=en

I just tried to contact them, but I've not heard anything from them yet. So, does anyone have some idea whether it is a valid option for me (or I have to stick to the 340 CHF plan of Assura!)?

Thanks in advance for your help?

Not sure about the rest of your post but I know quite a few PhD students that are on Swiss Care.

Apparently, Vaud doesn't authorize Ph.D. students to pick Swiss care. Those you know are probably residing at another cantons.

I wasn't aware that Vaud/Geneva doesn't allow Swiss Care.
At least in Bern it still works as of 2018 for postdocs and doctoral candidates.

Yes. Even the Ph.D. students of ETH are free to take that. But I'm starving to know about the Swiss Advisor thing and its potential acceptance (to Vaud authorities).

Alright... A Swiss advisor representative just closed the case as follows:

Unfortunately, you earn too much to be insured by a students insurance.
In fact, the maximum accepted by the Canton is 3'500.- gross per month.
