There are no medical reasons requiring patients undergoing outpatient procedures or surgery to spend a night in hospital. If, however, you do wish to stay overnight – because you live far away, for instance – you receive CHF 400 per course of treatment up to CHF 1,200 per calendar year to cover overnight stay costs including half board (supper and breakfast).
- You spend the night at a hospital recognised by us or at a hotel designated by the hospital.
- You spend the night there immediately before and/or after the outpatient procedure.
Overnight stay (outpatient)
There are various reasons why you might need to spend a night in hospital or in a recommended hotel before or after outpatient treatment. You will receive no contribution from basic insurance towards this expense. With PRIMEO supplementary insurance, you can bridge this gap.
