Rental Terms for the VIBRA

Conditions for the coverage by the basic health insurances:

  • The alarm-system must be rented
  • The patient must be over 5 years
  • A medical prescription is necessary

Only a rented device is refunded in accordance with the list of means and devices (MiGeL/LiMA art. 15.20).

* Reduction of the reimbursement KVG/LAMal to 0.30 CHF/day

Following a decision by the Swiss Federal Office of Public Health (SFOPH), the KVG/LAMal reimbursement rate was reduced to a single price of CHF 0.30 per day for the entire duration of the treatment from 1 April 2019.

In response to this reduction, we have filed an application to the SFOPH to obtain a new increase of the reimbursement rate. Further details can be found here.

How do I have to proceed for the refund?

You have to pay the invoices for the rental directly to Melebi SA. Please keep carefully the medical prescription of your doctor until reception of our invoice. Then send the prescription with the bill to your health insurance to obtain the compulsory refund of the basic health insurance. Some complementary insurance plans cover also the deductible at your expense.
