Our Swiss-wide network

Our doctors can often complete your treatment. But even if this is not possible and you need to consult a doctor in a hospital or elsewhere, we can still help you. The Medgate Partner Network is the largest network in Switzerland. It consists of over 2,800 specialists, family doctors, hospitals, physiotherapists, chiropractors, nutritionists and pharmacists.

Quick and expert treatment thanks to telemedicine and Digital Health

The Medgate App gives you quick and easy access to expert medical help. Experience a digital visit to the doctor with the video.


The consultation will be billed in the context of health insurance as part of the statutory benefits (analogous to a visit to a doctor's office) and is recognized by all Swiss health insurers. Teleconsultation costs are an average of CHF 50 during business hours on weekdays. Surcharges apply from 10 p.m. to 7 a.m. at night as well as on weekends and holidays.

In addition, some insurance models of our health insurance partners do not even incur any franchise or deductible costs.

Medgate is expanding its 24/7 emergency service and easing the burden on hospitals and ERs.
