Frequently asked questions

Your basic health insurance covers treatment abroad only in the event of an emergency. Voluntary treatment is not reimbursed.

  • In EU/EFTA countries, emergency medical expenses are covered by the basic health insurance, upon presentation of the European Health Insurance Card (back of your insurance card), under the conditions provided for by the social system of the relevant country. However, you remain subject to the local cost-sharing amounts, which may be higher than in Switzerland. Mundo supplemental insurance refunds the corresponding amount.
  • In countries outside the EU/EFTA, emergency medical expenses are covered by the basic health insurance, up to twice the amount that would have been paid by the insurer if the treatment had taken place in Switzerland (200% of the Swiss rate for outpatient treatment and 90% of the Swiss rate for inpatient treatment). Supplemental coverage, such as Mundo insurance, is especially recommended for the USA, Canada, Japan and Australia, where medical services are very expensive compared to Switzerland.
