Medical Insurance

Can anyone recomment a good Medical insurance company in Switzerland that...
1. Communicate with its members in English (not only in German/French...)
2. Provide excellent Insurance to its members also when they travel abroad...
3. Charge a Reasonable monthly premium...

At present I/we are insured with Grupe Mutuel - which provides non of the above

Thanks

Re: Medical Insurance

All the health insurance here provide you with your requirements, I am with OKK Winterthur and last year had an emergency in the Caribean and they even paid me more than I did finaly paid. Most of the insurance companies here speak English just ask for.

Good Luck

For foreign students, one of the cheap option is "swisscare".

Re: Medical Insurance

Check out this site:

http://www.comparis.ch

It has english and you can select everything you want for insurance and it gets you quotes from different companies to find the cheapest - maybe see which ones come back in English. Generally you can at least find someone on the phone to speak with in English...

Hi, Uri
A newspaper of consumer organization wrote on April the 4-th 2006 that the best service in Switzerland has Sanitas Krankenkasse.
1. But still not every office clerk will speak English with you I suppose.
2. They will but a few countries are excluded, e.g. Sweden.
3. The only advice to it is to take highest Frachise = CHF 2500

Have a nice day
