Implants such as artificial hip joints, knee joints and cataract lenses replace body parts that no longer function or function properly. They help patients get through their day-to-day lives without problems and improve their quality of life.

Benefits covered by the insurance

90% up to CHF 5,000

  • The intervention is performed on an outpatient basis.
  • It relates to a compulsory KVG benefit, i.e. basic insurance covers part of the cost.
