Specialists are often booked out for months. With Priority Access you receive an appointment with a specialist nearby in next to no time: within three days if you have private insurance and within seven days if you have semiprivate insurance. This service is free of charge.
Your medical care advisor will organise an independent second medical opinion. It can be a good idea to get a second opinion when you’re faced with the prospect of a complicated medical procedure. A second opinion can help you find the best solution for you. This service is free of charge. It includes organising and receiving a second medical opinion by a Medgate doctor.
A stay in hospital always involves a lot of planning. Do you need help getting to hospital or help at home during your absence? Your advisory team will be happy to help organise your hospital stay.
You also receive personal support when you’re in hospital. Just ask your advisory team if you need any help or advice. You can enjoy exclusive Preference benefits in selected partner hospitals of the Swiss Medical Network, such as:
Getting home and back on your feet
After hospital treatment you need peace and time to recover. Your advisory team can help organise your journey home and any follow-up treatment required. Do you need help around the house? We’re able to offer assistance here, too.
A living will allows you to state your personal preferences if there comes a time when you’re no longer able to communicate them. A consultation will help you make the right decisions and express your personal choices. For Preference customers, Sanitas covers the cost of consultation and filing a living will with the Swiss Red Cross (SRC).
