What is a primary health insurance?

A primary health insurance Scheme is any Health Insurance provided by the national system of a Member State of the Organisation (e.g. Swiss LAMal insurance, French social security, etc.). It can also be the health insurance provided by an international organisation based in Switzerland. These primary health insurances are considered adequate if it cover the spouse in his or her place of residence.

If you have any doubts, please contact the SHIPID service:

My spouse’s income or pension is originally expressed in a currency other than the Swiss franc. In which currency should I report his income?

You must declare the income or pension in the original currency. You can declare several amounts in different currencies by adding an income source (e.g. an income and a subsistence allowance). The official exchange rate in force at CERN on the effective date of your declaration will be used to produce the conversion into Swiss francs, and this is displayed immediately in the EDH form.
Do not convert the amount into Swiss francs yourself.
