About us

The CSS Institute is the scientific think tank of the CSS Insurance. It was founded in 2007 and its purpose is scientific research and teaching. The institute is intended to deliver empirically verifiable answers to questions about how healthcare services can be financed efficiently and how their cost can be distributed fairly.

The institute is funded in part by CSS Insurance AG and – depending on the nature of the research project – in part by third parties, such as the Swiss National Science Foundation.

The scientific objectivity and independence of research is measured in terms of the quality and nature of articles published in peer-reviewed journals.

The opinions expressed by the CSS Institute do not necessarily reflect those of the CSS Group.

The CSS Institute is based in Lucerne.
