Available at the end of this text is a link to a note verbale from the Swiss Mission outlining the revisions adopted by the Swiss Federal Council to the Ordinance on Health Insurance (OAMal), which will take effect on 1 January 2018. For the time being, we have only received the French version. We will share the English version as soon as it is made available.
This note verbale is of particular importance if your family member(s) hold(s) Swiss nationality, or a legitimation card “H”, or a Swiss permit (B, C or G) and is/are affiliated with the health insurance scheme through your employing Organization.
Your attention is drawn to the deadline of three months to submit requests for exemption from affiliation to Swiss health insurance providers.
Any queries relative to this revision should be addressed to the HR focal point in your respective Organization.
