Reduction of health insurance premiums

Reduction of health insurance premiums

In Switzerland, health insurance is mandatory to ensure access to basic health care. These websites offer comparisons of mandatory health insurance premiums:

  • www.praemien.admin.ch
  • www.comparis.ch

The government pays part of the mandatory health insurance cost for families with modest financial means. Such premium reductions are determined at the cantonal level. Whether or not you qualify for premium reductions depends on your income and the number of children in your family. They are calculated based on your tax return, so it is important that you hand in your tax return on time. If you qualify for premium reductions, you will automatically receive an application form telling you the amount of the premium reduction. New arrivals can pick up a request form at their place of residence (Gemeinde).
