Looking for good supplementary health insurance for alternative medicine

Dear All,

I am looking for Swiss insurance that has excellent to good refunds for alternative medicine like acupuncture and TCM and Chinese medications etc.
If possible, good maternity cover would be nice but this is not required.

I am using Comparis as well but have not yet been very successful finding the right cover, and the Comparis forum is full of horror stories on the treatment of people and their claims, some of which involve major companies.

Anyway, I am just looking for someone who also uses acu/TCM a lot and who likes their supplementary insurance. I know not all companies are everywhere but I can always check. (I am in Bern).

Edit: I found Sumiswalder.ch has good policies and even refunds courses like Tai Chi and QiQong.

To the pm person, I used Sumiswalder in the end. But check their t and c, as their coverage may have changed in the meantime.

Re: Looking for good supplementary health insurance for alternative medicine

You should check Groupe Mutuel, i currently have an insurance that for extra 12chf month, o get alternative medicine rights.

The first 150chf of massage, acupunture etc you have to pay it, after that, you either pay 90% or nothing, i can't remember correctly

I use Swica for complementary and have weekly acupuncture e TCM as well as the odd monthly massages. They always pay everything up very quickly.
