You’ve received your marching orders and are due to start military service soon? During your military service, your health insurance is covered by the Suva military insurance. If you send us your marching orders we’ll suspend your current health insurance.
If you undertake military service for more than 60 consecutive days, you can suspend your basic insurance for the duration of your conscription. You don’t pay a premium during this time. Important: we must receive your application at least eight weeks before you start your military service.
On request, some supplementary insurance plans can also be suspended. Any supplementary insurance plans that cover the same benefits as military insurance can be suspended. These are usually supplementary
If you’re interested in suspending a supplementary insurance plan, give us a call — we’ll be happy to advise you.

Recruit school isn’t a walk in the park. You have to be prepared for little sleep, strict rules and a tough programme. One big challenge is a long march wearing a rucksack weighing 10 kg. Be sure to break in your military shoes before starting. You’ll find it a lot easier if you’re physically fit when you start. Viktor Röthlin’s running coaching programme is a great way to prepare.
The post office delivers parcels weighing up to 5 kg that are sent to military addresses free of charge. All you have to do is write “Feldpost” (military post) on the address label. Let your family and friends know your military address – and why not include a wish list for your snack pack! Receiving post is a great way of boosting your motivation.
