Medical assistance explicitly does not cover any costs of epidemics or pandemics (see section 10.7 at General Insurance Conditions EGK-Assistance (in German).

FAQs

As of June 25, 2020, all costs for tests will be covered by the federal government if at least one requirement of the FOPH's sampling strategy dated June 24, 2020 is fulfilled (see FOPH fact sheet). This solves the problem that up to now not all cases have been treated equally: If the costs were covered by compulsory health insurance, the test subjects had to pay a deductible rate and excess. If, on the other hand, the cantons paid for the tests, the test persons did not incur any costs. This meant that there was a risk that persons would not be tested if they had to bear the costs of the test themselves.

The Confederation covers the costs of both tests for coronavirus infection and serological tests for the detection of antibodies. The Confederation reimburses the test for the SARS coronavirus-2 with a flat rate of 169 francs, and that for the detection of antibodies with 113 francs. The test criteria of the Federal Office of Public Health apply. Serological tests are not yet recommended.
