Insurance coverage in case of hospitalization
I have a procedure at the CIC clinic that requires a few days of hospitalization. I only have basic health insurance (LaMal), and no supplementary insurance, will the costs of this operation be covered?
Supplementary insurance for the general ward throughout Switzerland is not mandatory for surgery at the clinic. In the vast majority of cases (rare exceptions) your basic insurance will cover your operation.

Difference in management between CIC clinics?
Is it better to go to the CIC Clinic in Montreux or Saxon?
All CIC Clinics are designed on the same principle of global care. All our rooms are single rooms with the same hotel services (with the same insurance classifications). There is therefore no difference in patient care between Montreux and Saxon.
Minimum age for care

We take care of children from 15 years old.
Transfer to TRC
Who organizes my transfer to RTC (rehabilitation and treatment center)?
The surgeon will organize your transfer. If for any medical reasons it is decided during your stay at the clinic, we will try to find you a place in an establishment. However, the patient will have to arrange his transportation.
Meaning of C.I.C
What does C.I.C mean?
CIC = Clinical Innovative Concept
The concept is innovative on two levels, firstly innovative in terms of accessibility because we are the only group of private clinics with more than 85% of its patients insured only by LaMal, and secondly because we offer comprehensive and personalized care from the first consultation until post-operative rehabilitation.
