Your most frequently asked questions

Please contact our services to check whether the therapist and treatment are approved by Groupe Mutuel and that your supplemental insurance coverage is intended for this purpose.

Before any cure, your doctor must send us a request for treatment, specifying the place where he wants to send you. We will then check whether the facilities are approved.

Mainly dental accidents not covered by accident insurance and certain serious illnesses of the masticatory system as defined in Articles 17 to 19(a) of the Ordinance on Healthcare Insurance Benefits (OPAS/KLV). Terms of coverage are very restrictive.
In case of doubt, send us a treatment request completed by your dentist (detailed report, notification of injuries according to LAMal/KVG, cost estimate, X-rays, …).
