Helsana or Sanitas?

Anyone had experience of Sanitas or Helsana? Sanitas is the more expensive one.

Any feedback greatly appreciated.

Re: Helsana or Sanitas?

We have had Sanitas for almost 3 years now and have been very satisfied with their service and coverage. Very easy to submit invoices electronically and in short, we are happy. Search EF, for info whether to go with a higher franchise/deductible or lower one. Very useful info on this website!

You should also visit en.comparis.ch to look at ratings for both companies as well as others to decide. Good luck!

2nd that...been with Sanitas since 2010. No issues so far...touch wood.

They are not the cheapest but surely service and offering is much better.

Re: Helsana or Sanitas?

Just to complicate things, I've been with Helsana for 7 years..

Total simplicity, no up-front invoices, medical professionals and pharmacies just bill Helsana, they invoice later for the anything payable. Everything online, choice of language incl EN, can call them or email them with questions.

But as with any insurer, it depends on the policy what service you get ..

Re: Helsana or Sanitas?

I am with Helsana and like that everything is managed online and I have just emailed them about changes to policies and things have been done well. No issues with invoices in the last 8 years. They also have this app that I love using which rewards you with cash back (points earned for steps/exercise, cooking etc) and there is always a free gift that you can pick up from Kkiosk every week (drinks, ricola, ice cream, cereal bar etc). Helsana worked out to be the cheapest for me anyway but the additional perks are nice. Everyone even on basic insurance get these perks.
