Classic: comprehensive solution with extras | Sanitas health insurance

The supplementary insurance plan with all the trimmings


Comprehensive cover gives you peace of mind. Our Classic supplementary insurance plan covers additional benefits not included in your basic insurance and makes higher contributions to costs. This cover is therefore the ideal solution for couples and single people who want more benefits and greater financial security.

Your benefits with Classic

You don’t have to decide which benefits you need: Classic combines key benefits in a single package. This supplementary insurance plan pays additional costs and makes higher contributions compared to basic insurance. For example, for:


  • Alternative medicine
  • Fitness centre membership
  • Glasses
  • Emergency outpatient treatment abroad


Furthermore, you can switch to our Family plan without the otherwise mandatory medical exam if you are thinking about starting a family.

Overview of benefits

These figures 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.

Prevention is better than cure

Do you take care of your health and keep yourself fit? The Classic supplementary insurance plan pays up to CHF 1,000 per year towards the cost of preventive care and fitness. For example, for vaccinations, check-ups, gynaecological check-ups, stop smoking treatment or fitness centre membership (CHF 200 per year).

Contributions to glasses and contact lenses

If you wear glasses or contact lenses, Classic covers additional costs even if you buy them abroad. Up to the age of 18, you receive CHF 200 plus CHF 180 under basic insurance each year; from the age of 18, you receive CHF 300 every three years only under supplementary insurance. From age 18, basic insurance no longer pays contributions.

Alternative medicine complements traditional medicine

Basic insurance covers a few benefits such as acupuncture, Traditional Chinese Medicine and homoeopathy. If you'd like more alternative medical benefits, such as acupressure treatments, craniosacral therapy, osteopathy or Shiatsu massages, you need to have supplementary insurance cover. Classic covers 80% of costs (up to CHF 5,000 a year).
