Insurance categoriesand care

We offer different services and types of care depending on your insurance category. We also offer upgrade options to meet your individual needs.

The table below shows the services we offer for each insurance category when you are admitted as an inpatient. You can also add on private or semi-private benefits through our upgrade options, even if you don't have additional insurance. The performance mandate awarded by the State of Vaud means we offer care to an annual quota of patients with basic insurance.
