Your advantages with Medgate
Our Swiss-wide network
Our doctors can often complete your treatment. But even if this is not possible and you need to consult a doctor in a hospital or elsewhere, we can still help you. The Medgate Partner Network is the largest network in Switzerland. It consists of over 2,800 specialists, family doctors, hospitals, physiotherapists, chiropractors, nutritionists and pharmacists. This guarantees that you’ll receive the treatment you need as quickly as possible.
Quick and expert treatment thanks to telemedicine and Digital Health
The Medgate App gives you quick and easy access to expert medical help. Experience a digital visit to the doctor with the video.
The consultation will be billed in the context of health insurance as part of the statutory benefits (analogous to a visit to a doctor’s office) and is recognized by all Swiss health insurers. Teleconsultation costs are an average of CHF 50 during business hours on weekdays. Surcharges apply from 10 p.m. to 7 a.m. at night as well as on weekends and holidays.
In addition, some insurance models of our health insurance partners do not even incur any franchise or deductible costs.
