Do you wear glasses or contact lenses? Find out what costs CSS covers for children and adults.

Adults: participation in glasses & contact lenses

Mandatory basic insurance doesn’t cover any costs for glasses and contact lenses. So if you want to make sure you're better protected, it's worth taking out myFlex Outpatient Insurance.

How much you get

We’ll cover a share of the cost of your visual aid with a contribution per calendar year.

  • CHF 150 with myFlex Outpatient Insurance, Balance.
  • CHF 300 a year with myFlex Outpatient Insurance, Premium.

Children and young people: participation in glasses & contact lenses

Basic insurance only pays up to CHF 180 per calendar year for under-18s. With myFlex Outpatient Insurance, you enjoy additional cover up to your 18th birthday.

How much you get

  • CHF 180 per calendar year under basic insurance.
  • Additional CHF 150 per case with myFlex Outpatient Insurance, Balance.
  • Additional CHF 300 per case with myFlex Outpatient Insurance, Premium.
