Well, we had people like that too in Boston but, in reality, they weren't financially the same as everyone else....
very true.... with no offense, i've seen ppl WITHOUT swiss salary (academic guests, only salary from original coutnry) from some countries known to have not very wealthy people, doing more things (clubbing, skiing, apartment in downtown zurich, dining out, traveling ecc) than europeans and swiss paid phds and postdocs

Getting a cheap health insurance like swisscare helps a lot. 80CHF compared to 300 odd is quite a savings per month
if you are EU u don't need it!

Yes, you do, if you are a woman and coming from a country which does not support abortion for example. The insurance company from the country of origin need to support the mentioned abortion (and any other additional things which are supported by CH health insurance but not the country of origin). And that's against the law of the country that woman comes from. Since she cannot provide the coverage for that, she needs Swiss health insurance.

You can get out of paying insurance if you are in CH for a short time but not longer than 6 months. At least that was what happened in my case.

Re: PhD Salary

in general eu citizens SHOULD be covered by the national public or private health system.
it's like "patients are treated like in the country of origin". so it depends from the original nation. i just know that not even swiss people fully understand their health system
