How does the premium calculator work?

The health insurance premium calculator is an application used in Switzerland to calculate the current health insurance premiums for compulsory basic insurance (KVG) and supplementary insurance (VVG). Here is how a premium calculator works in Switzerland:

  1. Entering personal information: The user first enters personal information that is relevant for calculating the health insurance premium. This often includes factors such as date of birth, gender, place of residence (canton), desired insurance model (standard model, Telmed model, HMO model, etc.) and the amount of the desired annual deductible.
  2. Calculation of premiums: The premium calculator uses the data entered to calculate the expected premium for compulsory health insurance in Switzerland. This premium is normally paid monthly. The calculation is based on tariffs set by various health insurance companies and the respective cantons.
  3. Selection of supplementary insurance policies: The premium calculator also offers the option of selecting additional private health insurance policies (supplementary insurance) and adding their costs. These supplementary insurances can include things like dental insurance, supplementary hospitalisation insurance or cover for alternative medicine.
  4. Display of results: The premium calculator shows the user the estimated monthly premium for compulsory health insurance and the cost of any selected supplementary insurance. This enables the user to understand the total cost of their health insurance.
  5. Comparing options: Users have the opportunity to compare different insurance options by trying out different models, deductibles and add-ons to find the option that best suits their needs and budget.
  6. Taking out health insurance: In Switzerland, health insurance is compulsory and most citizens must take out a health insurance policy. After using the premium calculator, users can take out a policy directly with a health insurance company of their choice.
