Health and social security

The healthcare in Switzerland is first class. The canton Basel-Landschaft and the municipality of Allschwil provide various medical services such as cantonal doctors, school health services, school dental care, social medicinal and social psychiatry services.

Health insurance:
Every person living in Switzerland must have health insurance coverage. People are free to choose their insurer. Roughly 90 health insurance funds are recognised by the Federal Office of Public Health and are authorised to provide compulsory health insurance. Insurers are obliged to insure all persons regardless of age, state of health and without waiting times. The website of the Federal Office of Public Health (FOPH) provides comprehensive information on health insurance.
