Mandatory insurance in Switzerland

In Switzerland, mandatory insurance primarily refers to health insurance. The Swiss healthcare system is based on a mandatory insurance model, meaning that every resident is required by law to cover their medical costs through health insurance.

This coverage ensures universal access to medical care. Insured individuals can freely choose the insurance company by comparing various offers. Basic coverage includes essential services, with additional options available.

Insured individuals pay monthly premiums, with the possibility of copayments and deductibles. The goal is to ensure that everyone has access to necessary care without excessive financial burdens.
