OSTEOPATHIC MED.: A fee of CHF 210.00 will be charged for a missed or short-term cancelled first consultation and between CHF 130.00 and CHF 190.00 for a follow-up consultation. The invoice will be waived if the appointment can be given completely to substitute patient.
Costs of the FemMed Zürich KlG services

Services are invoiced according to effort and complexity. The tariff rates are between CHF 11.00 and 22.00 per started 5 minutes. For emergency appointments on the same working day, a fee of CHF 30.00 in addition to the basic rate is charged.
Reimbursement of treatment costs by health care insurance
OSTEOPATHIC MED: Osteopathic services are not covered by compulsory basic health insurance. The costs are usually reimbursed by the patient's private complementary insurance according to the Insurance Contract Law (VVG). In the event of an accident, the reimbursement of the costs by the accident insurance company must be clarified by the patient. Each patient is responsible for clarifying by whom the costs are reimbursed.
Visana policyholders: Visana pays a maximum of CHF 15.00 per 5 minutes. The difference between the reimbursed costs and the applied tariff rates for osteopathic services are invoiced to the patient privately. These will be shown on the invoice as „nicht versicherte Kosten: Behandlung pro 5 Minuten“ (not insured costs: treatment per 5 minutes”).
Helsana policyholders: No reimbursement.
