Health Insurance

All residents of Switzerland are required to have health insurance and must sign up themselves with one of the many cantonal health insurance companies within three months upon moving to Switzerland. The insurance starts (retrospectively) with the day of settling in Switzerland.
For students there are special aspects to be taken into account > please take note of the links indicated at the very bottom of this page and of the students' social services support.


Low-income persons and families can submit an application to the canton to request a reduction in premiums. For details, refer to the information on premium reductions in the canton of Basel-Stadt and premium reductions in the canton of Basel-Landschaft. The Students' Social Services provide students advice in person and by helpful links and guidelines.
