Insurance basics

Art Therapy is a complementary practice as defined by Swiss law. The compensation of the costs of Art Therapy sessions depends on the insurance cover of each individual. Here is a non-exhaustive list;

Basic insurance programmes (LaMal) do not cover Art Therapy costs.

Complementary insurance may cover art therapy typically for a maximum number of sessions per year. Here is a non-exhaustive list of Insurances that collaborate. Please consult with them prior to starting your therapy.

International Organisations have their own insurance schemes for their members and their families. They may cover complementary therapies with a referral from a general practitioner. Art therapy may be covered up to a maximum of sessions or cost per year. Please, contact your insurer directly.

For the CERN Community

Standing by your loved one while they fulfill their dreams at CERN may require you leaving aside your own dreams for a while. Moving country, quitting a job, leaving far from your friends and family are things most of us experience, as partners of CERNOIS .

This is why I am running a quasi-voluntary group therapy at CERN Welcome Club with priority to those with no (or limited) access to insurance benefits. Feel free to contact me if you are interested to join us.

CERN Health insurance (CHIS)

Always consult CHIS prior to starting your Therapy.
