Your family doctor knows you and your medical history. So, you don't have to repeat your medical history every time you go – and they know what to do. With our CareMed family doctor model, you can choose any family doctor in Switzerland.
Anyone who is resident in Switzerland is obliged by law to have basic health insurance in order to ensure basic medical care for all. All health insurers cover the same benefits under basic insurance.
The amounts listed are for maximum benefits and, unless specified otherwise, are valid for each calendar year. Benefits are granted only in accordance with the Swiss Federal Health Insurance Act (KVG/LAMal) and the corresponding ordinances, and the general terms of insurance and applicable supplementary terms issued by Sanitas.
With CareMed you save 7% on your premium compared to the Basic standard model for basic health insurance.
Your family doctor is your first point of contact for medical queries. This doctor provides advice, examines you and administers treatment. Or he recommends a course of treatment and refers you to a specialist.
If you prefer an alternative form of treatment, discuss your preferences with your family doctor. He or she also coordinates and organises all the measures required. This increases the chances of success and avoids unnecessary examinations. In opting for this model, you help cut costs, and in return you get a discount on your premium.
