ZAFAS - certified working ability assessors


All ZAFAS and FOMA assessments are carried pit within the AEH expert team by SIM certified ZAFAS and medical experts or under the supervision of our medical director, who contributed to the development of the ZAFAS concept throughout Switzerland in the context of Swiss Insurance Medicine and also contributed to the drafting of the expert report guidelines. Both assessments are suitable in the context of second opinions in insurance medicine, related to absence management or of early detection.

Target groups:

  • Daily sickness benefit and accident insurance companies
  • Social security insurance
  • Companies of various sizes and industries
