Free choice of doctors, fewer frills

Compact Basic

Compact Basic is our basic insurance plan with free choice of doctors, including specialists, throughout Switzerland. However, you have fewer services compared to the Basic standard model.

Step by step: how Compact Basic works

  1. You make an appointment with a doctor or specialist.
  2. The doctor or specialist provides treatment.
  3. The doctor or specialist sends us the bill, and we take care of the rest.

Key benefits of basic insurance

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.

 

For example

  • Treatment with a doctor or specialist throughout Switzerland
  • Hospital treatment in the general ward of your canton of residence
  • Cost share towards emergency treatment worldwide
  • Medicines, laboratory tests or medical aids

Overview of benefits

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.

No-frills service

You can only call our customer service team from 9 am to 2 pm and you can’t use your insurance card to pay at the pharmacy. Apart from this, you’re entitled to the same benefits as with the standard Basic health insurance plan. For example, you have a free choice of doctors so you can choose who should provide your treatment depending on the situation.
