Gesundheitsförderung Schweiz

Key facts

The Health Insurance Act (HIA) stipulates that insurers must promote the prevention of illness. As a result, the insurers, together with the cantons, set up the Health Promotion Switzerland (HPS) foundation, which implements and supports health promotion and illness prevention measures throughout Switzerland. These are financed by health insurers through a levy of CHF 0.40 per month per insured person. In 2022, HPS had around CHF 42 million at its disposal. The Confederation is responsible for supervising the foundation.
