Disadvantage private insurance? People with supplementary insurance are demonstrably treated more often on the heart

Those who have private hospital insurance are more likely to have a cardiological intervention in Switzerland than people who have basic insurance. This is shown by a study by the University of Basel and the Cantonal Hospital Aarau.

In Switzerland, everyone has access to the most expensive healthcare system in the world. Nevertheless there are differences. In addition to the obligatory health insurance, additional insurance can be taken out, which has a number of advantages, such as a single room or free choice of doctor. But now a study by the University of Basel and the Cantonal Hospital Aarau shows another surprising effect. In Switzerland, patients with private supplementary insurance are more likely to have a cardiological intervention than people who only have basic insurance.
