In Switzerland, the healthcare system is comprehensive, but the way treatments, including manual therapy, are covered can depend on various factors:
Basic Health Insurance (Mandatory Health Insurance – LaMal): Switzerland has mandatory health insurance (known as LaMal – L’Assurance Maladie). If a doctor prescribes manual therapy or physiotherapy, the basic insurance generally covers a portion of the cost. However, there is typically a deductible that patients have to reach first, and then there is a coinsurance (often 10% of the costs) up to a certain maximum that patients need to pay out-of-pocket each year.
Supplementary Insurance: Many Swiss residents also opt for supplementary (or complementary) health insurance to cover health services not paid for by the mandatory insurance or to get higher reimbursements. Depending on the policy, this insurance might cover more sessions or different types of treatments within manual therapy.
Out-of-Pocket: If you are seeking manual therapy without a doctor’s prescription or if your insurance does not cover it, you may have to pay out-of-pocket. It’s always a good idea to inquire about prices ahead of time.
Recognition of the Therapist: It’s crucial to check if the manual therapist or physiotherapist is recognized by your insurance. In Switzerland, not all therapists are acknowledged by every insurance company, which means insurance might not cover their services, even with a doctor’s prescription.
Accident vs. Illness: If the need for therapy arises from a work or non-work-related accident, the costs may be covered differently, often through accident insurance, rather than the regular health insurance.
Limit on Sessions: Even if manual therapy is covered, there might be a limit on the number of sessions that are paid for in a given time frame.
In summary, while manual therapy can be covered in Switzerland under various circumstances, it’s essential to check your specific insurance details, verify the recognition status of your therapist, and be aware of deductibles and coinsurance. If unsure, it’s a good idea to contact your insurance provider directly or consult with the manual therapist about payment expectations.
Young Adults (15 and Older): At Physio Dynamics, the minimum age for participation in MTT is 15 years old. For those aged 15 and up, especially those engaged in sports or dealing with growth-related muscular imbalances, MTT can be a beneficial supplement to traditional physiotherapy.
Adults: MTT offers a highly flexible and personalized experience tailored to meet the various fitness and medical needs of adult clients.
Seniors: Older adults can also benefit from MTT, specifically tailored to improve mobility, balance, and overall well-being. Any age-related limitations are accommodated with appropriate exercise modifications.
Before beginning any MTT program, it’s important to consider the following:
Absolute Contraindications: Acute injuries, certain cardiovascular conditions, and specific orthopedic issues may make MTT inappropriate. Consult your healthcare provider for a thorough evaluation if you have any of these conditions.
Relative Contraindications: If you have mild to moderate hypertension, recent surgeries, or other special medical considerations, modifications to your training program may be necessary.
We strongly recommend a comprehensive medical assessment, especially for those new to MTT or with existing medical conditions. Additionally, some insurance companies may require a physiotherapy prescription as part of their policy for covering MTT costs. This prescription provides a thorough evaluation and serves to guide your tailored training program effectively.
