An innovative comparison tool to guide you in your choices
The Swiss Risk & Care comparison tool analyses the services offered by seven insurance companies, as well as the levels of their premiums and their solvency based on criteria selected by the applicant through a tailor-made questionnaire.
It has been developed by our expert, Philippe Roche, using an independent methodology.
Sanitas, CSS, Helsana, Groupe Mutuel, Swica, Visana and Concordia are insurance companies which have been selected following an analysis of the following criteria:
- Positioning in the market
- Financial situation (reserves, solvency ratio, compensation funds, etc.)
- Evolution of premiums
- Evolution and quality of service
On this basis, we guarantee that each customer can choose the coverage best suited to their specific needs in terms of benefits: hospitalisation, outpatient, dental, overseas care and alternative medicine.
As an expert in medical expenses, Philippe Roche has 30 years of experience in setting up collective contracts.
FMSI : a personalised solution, unique within the market
Véronique Vernaz presents Swiss Risk & Care’s new product for businesses: a unique tool to guide employees in choosing their health insurance.
Why create a health insurance comparison tool?
Initially, there was a desire to predict the evolution of premiums in order to best advise our customers. So our expert, Philippe Roche, developed a benchmark for health insurance companies that takes more criteria into account than Comparis comparison tools. An analysis of insurers’ financial situations, particularly with regards to compensation funds, provides an accurate overview of the evolution of costs. This means we can help individuals choose health insurance for the short and medium terms.
What are the benefits for businesses?
FMSI are, first and foremost, social benefits included in general HR policies to retain employees and attract new talent. In comparison with its competitors, the company benefits from a significant asset and becomes more attractive. Secondly, good health insurance coverage has a direct impact on employee absenteeism in that it affects their health. To have an impact on reducing absenteeism, one has to control personal insurance premiums.
How much does this new service cost?
This is a service which is unique in the market and which we offer to businesses at no additional cost. Whether used in the management of collective contracts or for the optimisation of HR policies on employee coverage, neither the employer nor the employees incur any type of cost. This offer is part of our general brokerage approach: selection of the best services based on criteria which are important for employees, and advice and guidance up until purchase of the contract.
