What about pregnancy/maternity coverage?

If you arrive in Switzerland and seek maternity coverage, pregnant women are fully covered for all health care issues (not just maternity related), after week thirteen of their pregnancy until eight weeks after they give birth. This coverage is, with zero deductible, and without the usual participation. A complementary insurance plan allows for personal choice of physician and hospital or clinic as well as a private or semi-private room. A nine or twelve month waiting period always applies to this option, so for those who arrive in Switzerland who are already pregnant the birth will automatically take place in the public hospital (or the mother will bear the cost of the private clinic).
