health insurance (including birth)
 
hi, guys,
i am new here and i am going to Lausanne as a postdoc in July.
i got a question about my health insurance. which kind of insurance should i buy or how much does it cost monthly?
one more question is my wife is going to come with me and she is pregnant. we have to give birth in Lausanne. do we have to buy extra insurance for the birth or regular insurance covers the cost even u just join the insurance program? Currently we are both in Germany.
thank you very much and nice to know all you friends.

The fantastic thing here is that your compulsory insurance cover starts the moment you officially 'arrive'...

I would highly recommend emailing Jenny - she posts here a lot on the forum and is a freelance insurance broker - she did a great deal for us with our children and was able to explain all our options and find us the best insurance to suit our needs...

Also, in terms of birth options there are some nice things like choice between obstetricians, midwives, birthing centres and even homebirth if you want, and they also have home-visiting midwives and other handy support, if you ask the right questions, or choose the right hospital... :D

you can PM Jenny, who wrote this thread, and she will organise things for you!

Hello junhauq,

You can start your search for insurance online at Comparis.
The site's in German (De), French (Fr), Italian (It) and English (En). Here's the link to the health insurance:
