All Swiss VAD services charge the same fee (with the exception of EX International which says they operate on a donation system, as they are all volunteers). The other three groups seem to operate a bit like a cartel as their prices are all the same. One explanation for this may be that Switzerland has strict laws against self-enrichment when it comes to assisted suicide. This is why a psychiatrist, for example, must charge the same fee to a person using Pegasos as they charge to any other patient. For the sake of transparency, the actual dose of Nembutal in Switzerland costs < €100.
At Pegasos, a VAD costs €10,000. This amount is payable in two installments. The first installment is paid online at the time the VAD application is made, but before the green light approval is given. The second payment is due when the Green Light is given and the VAD is confirmed. Both payments are made online via the Pegasos website or by wire to the Pegasos Swiss bank account.
Pegasos Refund Policy
Note - Pegasos offers a transparent and reliable refund process. Should you not go through with your VAD, for any reason, the only funds that are withheld by Pegasos are those that have been genuinely incurred in the lead-up to, and administration of, your VAD application (usually around €1500).
This refund policy stands in marked difference to that of organisations such as Dignitas, where one’s required deposit of 3000 CHF is non-refundable.
