Babies have specific needs – not least where insurance cover is concerned. In addition to basic insurance, the Baby Package includes key supplementary insurance and offers comprehensive cover in case of illness and accident.
Take out the Baby Package or individual components before the birth.
With the Baby Package, you enjoy the following benefits and advantages:
Our HOSPITAL ECO supplementary hospital insurance gives you a free choice of hospitals throughout Switzerland. It covers the hospital costs that basic insurance does not cover for out-of-canton treatments during a stay in the general ward.
With COMPLETA supplementary insurance, you receive coverage for remedies and therapy methods provided by complementary medicine, such as osteopathy, kinesiology and Bach flower remedies.
Thanks to the global coverage abroad from COMPLETA supplementary insurance, you can travel to other countries with your baby without worry. We pay the costs for outpatient and inpatient emergency treatments, transportation and rescue as well as repatriation to Switzerland.
The civil and motorists' legal expenses cover under our Helsana Advocare PLUS legal expenses insurance is the optimal supplement to the legal expenses cover in health matters and travel abroad under COMPLETA supplementary insurance. Advocare PLUS is moreover free for children up to the age of 18.
PREVEA Accident capital insurance helps you handle the financial consequences of disability in order to provide a better future for your child. You do not pay any premiums for PREVEA for the first two months.
The purpose of prenatal registration is to enable you to insure your newborn baby optimally from the very first moment with supplementary insurance, easily and without a risk assessment. Prenatal registration means that even children who come into the world with complications have comprehensive insurance cover.
If, on the other hand, registration only takes place after the birth, a risk assessment will first have to be made for any supplementary insurance. In case of an existing condition, there is a risk of rejection.
The hospital insurance included in the Baby Package for the general ward with a choice of hospitals in Switzerland (HOSPITAL ECO) can be taken out before birth without a medical examination.
You can apply for semi-private (HOSPITAL Semi-Private) or private (HOSPITAL Private) hospital insurance only after the child is born. To do this, you complete a questionnaire on your baby's state of health. After our specialists have checked it, we will notify you whether your application has been accepted or rejected.
In the case of prenatal registration, you do not have to complete a medical examination. We guarantee that we will include your baby in all desired supplementary insurance within the Baby Package.
However, you must wait until after the birth to apply for supplementary insurance that is not included in the Baby Package. To do this, you must complete a questionnaire on your baby's state of health. After a specialist has checked it, we will notify you whether your application has been accepted or rejected.
Of course, you can insure only your baby with us and keep your own health insurance with another provider.
However, if you also insure other family members, you benefit from an attractive family discount on your supplementary insurance. Therefore, we would be pleased to provide you with a non-binding family offer that incorporates all discounts and savings options.
A family of two living in the same household already receives a 5% family discount on their supplementary insurance. For three or more people, the discount is 10%. Your baby also benefits from the family discount if you include it in your family policy.
The third child and each additional child under the age of 18 also receive a 90% discount on the children's premium for basic insurance. This applies only if at least two other underage children have basic insurance cover under the same family contract.
We're here to help.
