According to the press release, the online comparator is based on its forecasts of the growth of overall health costs in Switzerland. Next year, these will increase by 3.2%, according to Comparis and the KOF Economic Research Center at the ETH Zurich. For the current year, forecast growth was 3.6%.

Nearly twice as much as the 28-year average

“The growth in the cost share determining health insurance premiums is always a little higher, because the catalog of basic insurance benefits is constantly expanding,” explains Felix Schneuwly, health insurance expert at Comparis in the press release.

An estimate that could be important as Switzerland votes on June 9 on two initiatives to limit premiums to 10% of household income and to curb health costs. Because if the increase predicted by Comparis is lower than that of 2024, it nonetheless remains well above the average since 1996 and the entry into force of Lamal (3.8% increase per year over the period , 3.4% since 2010), recalls Tages-Anzeiger.
