Supplementary insurance

ACL - 2024

Purpose & Operation

Supplementary insurance, known as VVG, is completely private. They are all different for each health insurer, and unlike the LAMal, insurers are under no obligation to accept policyholders. They will then be asked a series of questions about their medical history and general state of health.

VVGs fill the gaps left by the KVG and offer benefits that improve on the KVG, and are therefore essential.

If the LAMal seemed complicated until now, the LCAs are much more so. Coverage, reimbursement types, rates, cancellation deadlines and contract durations vary from one health insurer to another.

Sparta Group S.A.’s experienced brokers will analyze your customer profile and requirements, and help you choose the complementary products best suited to your needs.

It’s very important to take out ACL insurance, because once treatment has begun or something unfortunate has happened, it will be almost impossible to take out new supplementary insurance, and it will be too late to benefit from the coverage and reimbursements offered by the latter.

Here are a few examples of coverings found in ACLs:

  • Glasses and contact lenses
  • Dental care, orthodontics and maxillofacial surgery benefits

  • Ultrasounds and additional gynecological visits in the event of pregnancy

Staying Vigilant

Health insurance is often too little controlled, even though it is an important part of a budget and, above all, concerns our care and state of health. Here are a few important points: :

  • The importance of answering the health questionnaire accurately.
  • Target your current and future needs.
  • Compare benefits and terms and conditions in detail.
  • Ensure the company’s “after-sales service” and philosophy.
  • Take advantage of the strength of numbers via your Broker, in order to carry more weight.
