This high quality comes with a price, of course, so newly arrived individuals should make sure of their healthcare and accident insurance. Health and hospitalization insurance is mandatory, but it is up to each individual to verify not only that he/she is appropriately insured, but also all the members of the family.

Hospital emergency services handle patients in order of their urgency. The cantonal hospital in Zug has a 24-hours emergency service, also for children. You may go there yourself, so don’t wait for an ambulance if it is not necessary. The hospital will ask about your insurance coverage. If you do not have Swiss medical insurance, the hospital will probably require some advance payment or financial security.
