Complementary supplementary insurance for alternative medicine

The complementary supplementary insurance of Visana covers the costs for more than 50 alternative medical treatments as well as the corresponding medication. Once again, you can choose from three benefit levels. The benefit levels differ in the amount of the contributions. The supplementary insurance covers 90 percent of the treatment costs, up to a maximum of 1,000, 4,000 or 10,000 Swiss francs per year.


In benefit levels I and II, the insurance only covers treatments carried out by a therapist recognised by Visana. In benefit level III, Visana pays 50 percent for treatment by an unrecognised therapist.
