Prenatal registration

Pre-natal registration: Report your baby to your health insurance company in good time

Every Swiss citizen must be registered with a health insurance fund. That already goes for babies. In order for your baby to enjoy comprehensive insurance cover from birth, prenatal registration is recommended. This also protects you if your child is born sick.

Advantages of prenatal registration  

If you already register your unborn child with the health insurance fund, the insurance cover already exists from the moment of birth. With prenatal registration, you can settle all administrative matters in peace and quiet and spend more time with your baby after birth.

The prenatal registration in the supplementary insurance is particularly important. In contrast to basic insurance, there is no obligation to take out a policy here. Health insurance may refuse to admit your child without giving reasons. You should therefore take care of all important supplementary insurance before birth.

Saving with the family discount

You do not necessarily have to insure your baby with the health insurance company with which you have concluded a contract. However, many health insurers offer families with several children a family discount with reduced premiums. Depending on the insurer, you will receive the family discount from the second or third child onwards.
