Glasses, contact lenses and hearing aids

For children up to the age of 18, the basic health insurance contributes to the costs of glasses and contact lenses up to CHF 180 per year. For adults, the basic health insurance only pays a contribution in special cases following surgery or an ophthalmic illness, for purchases made in Switzerland and if prescribed by an ophthalmologist.

Usually, the AI/IV or AVS/AHV will cover part of the costs of hearing aids.

Depending on the situation, compulsory health insurance will provide partial coverage, but only in the event of a total refusal of coverage by the AI/IV or AVS/AHV.

If you are in this situation, please send us the AI/IV or AVS/AHV refusal decision so that we can decide whether or not we must contribute to the costs.

If you have supplemental insurance covering this type of medical aid, it can contribute to the costs in addition to the AI/IV, AVS/AHV or compulsory health insurance. Please submit your request for review.
