SUVA, the insurer of the basic accident insurance, is obliged to provide benefits in advance and to take into account the legally prescribed minimum benefits in accordance with the Swiss Federal Law on Accident Insurance (UVG). Benefits in excess of this can be requested from the supplementary accident insurance of your health insurance company. Please contact - in addition to SUVA - also your supplementary health insurance, otherwise the hospital will only initiate measures of the basic insurance.
- You can report an accident to SUVA directly online. The reported accident will be automatically processed and forwarded to SUVA. Please use the following link: UKA Send (novartis.intra)
If you have supplementary private health insurance or supplementary accident insurance via the Rotkreuz site - i.e. benefits that go beyond the UVG, e.g. semi-private or private patient - it is advisable to check briefly with the hospital and your supplementary health insurance before admission to hospital. Notify the treating hospital of your insurance status before treatment (1st - 2nd or 3rd class), otherwise the hospital will only initiate basic coverage (3rd class) measures. Are you a Sandoz Pharmaceuticals AG or Novartis Pharma AG employee? Then you are covered by UVG supplementary insurance and refer the hospital to Generali Versicherungen - policy no. 23 002 103 for a cost approval. From Switzerland: 0800 82 84 86, from abroad: +41 58 472 00 00.
