Personal advice

If you have semiprivate insurance your personal customer advisor is your first point of contact at Sanitas. They will answer any questions you may have on your insurance cover or will refer you on when necessary. On request, they can also help you organise a hospital stay, make an appointment for you or recommend a suitable hospital or spa treatment centre.

Priority Access: Quicker access to a specialist

Specialists are often booked out for months. Waiting can be stressful, but if you have semiprivate hospital insurance you don’t have to wait long. Your Sanitas advisor will help you organise an appointment within just seven days.

If you’ve opted for a family doctor model for your basic insurance, then please always consult your family doctor first.

Do you want extra comfort and peace and quiet during your hospital stay?

You will be reimbursed up to the value of CHF 1,000.

SRC living will: free consultation and filing

A living will allows you to state your personal preferences if there comes a time when you’re no longer able to communicate them.
