Health Insurance

Hello everyone

This is my 1st post and I have a question about the health insurance in Switzerland. I am a PhD student in Brazil and I will start working as a post-doc in Zurich next August. I have researched on internet and I found a health insurance for international post-docs named "Swisscare". Can anybody tell me any information about it or share any experience with Swisscare?

Thank you!

Hey, most foreign PhDs/postdocs opt for Swisscare which costs 245 Sw fr for 3 months...Quite hassle free in that you just pay online, no medical test etc, and get insured immediately. You can do all this within 3 months of arriving here and settling more pressing issues . If you are starting next August, then it is too early to worry about insurance now IMO.

Re: Health Insurance

There are several student insurance companies around.

The most popular seem to be Swisscare, Goldencare and CSS Studentcare.

They are all very similar - offering low premiums (usually between 80.- and 90.- a month) and a low annual deductible (between 75.- and 100.- p.a.)

Some have add-ons available, some don't.

Premiums may vary if you choose to pay annually, quarterly etc. depending on which one you go for.

All 3 are reputable companies as far as I'm aware.
