Students entitled to apply for Health Insurance Subsidy

Hello, I'm a graduate student, and just applied for a cantonal subsidy for healthcare. If I receive it, I will pay less than chf 30 per month of premium, and only be liable for a chf 150 deductible.

To be approved, my application showed that my earnings (from an internship) are very low here at the Uni, that I am completely independent from my parents, and that I have "x" amount in my Swiss account.

The only inconvenience so far is that I must pay the full monthly premium (for me chf300) until I am approved, which could be as late as June. Then again, I may be rejected, but at least other students should know about this!

My university claimed to have consulting services with this information, but they were totally unhelpful, as was canton Ticino. Some lovely people at OCST in Lugano helped me with the application. We spoke in Italian, but I believe they do speak some English. Here is the link: http://www.ocst.com/pagine/cast.htm

Good luck!

Re: Students entitled to apply for Health Insurance Subsidy

I also applied for health insurance subsidy.

2 of my friends applied through their insurance company (KPT), and 1 is already approved, and paying 25chf. the other one is still pending, and they didnt do the application at the same time.

I didnt apply through my insurance company, rather i went to the townhall, and filling this form i got from them. I did this in december last year, was told to expect 3 months to be processed.

I do not know the difference in these two procedures, I hope to get approved

Good luck.

In Zug, anyone can apply for a heath insurance subsidy through the AHV office. If your income is below a certain amount, you will qualify. I was sent a letter, booklet and form last week.

Re: Students entitled to apply for Health Insurance Subsidy

Hi! I am interested in getting subsidy on health insurance from the canton of Neuchatel. I was told they usually decline subsidies for students. Is it true?
