Health and accident insurance
Once you have retired, you will no longer be covered by your employer’s LAA/UVG accident insurance. Before ending your professional activity, please contact your health insurance and ask them to add the accident risk to your basic health insurance coverage.
Once retired, you will face the risk of diminished income. If you have a modest income, you are entitled to a subsidy from your canton to help you pay your health insurance premiums. Here is a list of cantonal offices where you can apply for a subsidy.
Also remember that your health needs change as you get older. You may therefore want to:
- have a health check,
- benefit from a better level of comfort in the event of hospitalisation, or
- do a convalescence cure after an operation.
In such cases, we recommend our Hôpital senior or Vitalis supplemental insurance schemes. Discover the benefits of these schemes below.
