The new Rules of the CERN Health Insurance Scheme (CHIS) will come into force on 1 May 2023.
The CHIS will continue to reimburse sessions with a psychotherapist or psychologist prescribed by a medical practitioner in accordance with the General Rule, but they will henceforth be reimbursed as treatments dispensed by psychotherapists and psychologists for adults, rather than by medical auxiliaries, and will be subject to a special ceiling of 6’000 CHF per calendar year.
As a transitory measure, this year, any care received before 1 May 2023 will still be included in the medical auxiliaries ceiling (3’300 CHF). For any care received after 1 may 2023, the applicable ceiling treatments dispensed by psychotherapists and psychologists for adults has been prorated at 8/12 (4’000 CHF).
