A stay abroad
Vacation, language stay abroad, trip around the world? Clarify how well you are insured while abroad, optimise the protection, and leave your cares behind when you venture out into the big, wide world, which begins – from an actuarial point of view – just after the border.
When am I insufficiently insured?
- With mandatory health care insurance, emergency treatments abroad are covered.
- Outside of the EU and EFTA countries, however, basic insurance pays up to the double of the amount that must be paid in Liechtenstein for the same treatment. Unfortunately, this is often not enough. Especially in countries like the USA, Canada, Australia and Japan, this coverage is often insufficient.
How can I be optimally insured while abroad?
Always have your health insurance card with you!Your health insurance card with the emergency number, which helps around the clock and on weekends, too. You will need the card as proof of insurance in the event of a medical emergency in EU and EFTA member states. On the back side, you will find the European health insurance card.
