Who covers the costs?

The federal government covers the costs for persons with symptoms of the disease (via health insurance, no excess, no deductible). Please refer to the FOPH page for information on typical symptoms of the disease COVID-19, symptoms and treatment, origin of new coronavirus.

For persons without symptoms of disease, the Federal Council decided to extend its testing strategy with its decision of 12 March 2021. Regarding the assumption of costs, please inform yourself about the current FOPH regulation.

Corona testing can be carried out at the patient's request (e.g. for a trip). Patients with Swiss residence will receive the bill at home. For patients with a foreign domicile, an invoice will be issued after the test, which must be paid on site.
