There are many different health insurance providers for you to choose from. Although the services are the same, provider premiums can differ enormously. For this reason, it is advisable for you to check every year how much your healthcare cover costs.
You can always cancel your basic health insurance at the end of the year, subject to one month’s notice. So, if you want to be insured at another Swiss health insurance provider in the following year, you have to give notice and switch by the end of November of the current year. You can obtain a sample cancellation letter from the Swiss Federal Office of Public Health, for example. ((externer Link in neuem Fenster))
To switch supplementary health insurance providers, you have to comply with the deadlines and contract terms of your current provider.
