Coronavirus

The Federal Office of Public Health (FOPH) can answer a number of questions (ofsp.ch) and has made available a coronavirus self check-up: https://check.bag-coronavirus.ch/screening.

The coronavirus disease is particularly dangerous for persons over 65 years of age and those already suffering from a disease. A person is considered to be at risk if he or she suffers from one of these diseases:

  • high blood pressure
  • diabetes
  • cardiovascular diseases
  • chronic respiratory diseases
  • weakened immunity due to disease or therapy
  • cancer.

Follow these rules to protect others as well as yourself:

  1. Keep your distance as much as possible (2 metres if possible) when you are in a group of people (public transport, shops, work, etc.).
  2. Wash your hands carefully and as often as possible.
  3. Avoid physical contact when greeting others (no handshakes, kisses, etc.).
  4. Cough or sneeze into your elbow or into a tissue and throw it away as soon as possible in a dustbin.
  5. Stay at home from now on. The only exceptions are when you have to do grocery shopping, go to the doctor or pharmacy, help someone who needs support, or go to work because working from home is not possible.
  6. If you have any symptoms, phone your doctor or the hospital but do not leave the house.

Due to the exceptional situation and in order to support our policyholders, we have decided to suspend payment reminders in March and April 2020. In addition, Groupe Mutuel will waive interest on arrears and offer the possibility of obtaining payment arrangements free of charge.
If you are directly impacted by the crisis, please contact us on 0848 803 111 for a payment arrangement or to extend the deadline.

As with other laboratory tests, Coronavirus screening tests are covered by insurance, less the deductible and co-insurance amounts, if they have been prescribed by an approved doctor. 

According to the Federal Office of Public Health (FOPH), the priority is to wash your hands thoroughly. Therefore, hand disinfectant gel is not refunded as a means of prevention.

If it is an emergency, you can see another doctor without a referral voucher. For other medical treatments, please call your general practitioner (GP) and ask him/her to send you a referral voucher by post.

Yes, you may also contact your pharmacist by phone. He/she will be able to assess your health condition remotely and recommend the appropriate measures.

Yes, you must still contact the call centre before each appointment. Furthermore, in case of symptoms, the Swiss authorities recommend that you call the doctor or hospital before leaving the house in order to avoid infecting other people.

Treatments recognised by the compulsory health insurance (LAMal/KVG) cover treatments related to the Coronavirus. Therefore, you are covered by compulsory health insurance in case of illness abroad. This coverage also applies in the event of being placed in quarantine in a hospital abroad.

If you have subscribed to Mundo, this insurance also covers a number of additional costs up to CHF 100,000 per calendar year.
