How the cardiovascular check works

Cardiovascular conditions are among the most common diseases and are the leading cause of death in Switzerland.

25 minutes for a healthy life

Some 120 TopPharm pharmacies offer the cardiovascular check. A specialist there will check your personal risk factors. Your blood sugar, blood pressure and abdominal girth will be measured. The results will be discussed with you, and you'll be given valuable tips.

The programme is currently only available in German.

Frequently asked questions

What does CSS pay towards a cardiovascular check?

CSS pays a share of the costs through the Health Account. You pay for the consultation directly at the time, then submit the bill to us by post or via myCSS for reimbursement.

When is a cardiovascular check worthwhile?

If more than two of the following risk factors apply to you, it's definitely worth having a cardiovascular check.

  • Smoking
  • Lack of exercise
  • Unbalanced diet
  • Stress
  • Excess weight
  • High blood sugar levels
  • High blood fat levels
  • Family history

What's more, the risk of cardiovascular disease is higher for men and tends to increase as you get older.

Can I go ahead with the check without discussing it with CSS first?

Yes. You can go directly to a TopPharm pharmacy near you.
