Medical Insurance/Bank Account

Hi all!


I have to purchase Swiss medical insurance and open a Swiss bank account (required by my employer for my salary). I have a few questions regarding each.


Regarding the Swiss medical insurance, I am unsure where to begin. I have looked up a few companies. I am mainly looking for an affordable option.


Regarding the Swiss bank account, I am looking for a bank that provides a good checking & savings account. This may be a long shot--but I am interested in a bank account that can accept my salary (made in Swiss francs) and make payments in American dollars.


Thank you all for your help! I really appreciate it.

Hi Luke,


Have a look at this site to compare the premiums of different insurers: https://en.comparis.ch/krankenkassen/default?utm_source=googlead&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign=kk_krankenkasse_fr_kk_2019_herbst&gclid=EAIaIQobChMI5vj6-piA5wIVWeN3Ch3QegmsEAAYASAAEgJW7vD_BwE&gclsrc=aw.ds


Concerning the selection of a bank do not expect to find any with a generous remuneration on a savings account. We live through a period of negative interests in Switzerland and a number of banks charge you interests on deposits above a certain threshold. I recommend simply comparing the fees for a current account and tor remittances to the US charged by the major banks such as PostFinance, UBS, Banque Cantonale de Genève, and Crédit Suisse.


 I hope that helps, best regards,


 Andre
