Cover my costs for glasses/contact lenses

You or your child needs glasses. What benefits are covered by the basic health insurance?

The basic health insurance does not cover the costs of glasses and contact lenses for adults. An exception to this rule may be in the event of a specific illness, but only for glasses or lenses purchased in Switzerland.

For children up to the age of 18, the compulsory insurance reimburses CHF 180 per year for glasses or contact lenses purchased in Switzerland, if prescribed by an ophthalmologist.

Should I take out supplemental insurance?
