  • or a written cost acceptance statement from your health insurer, pension insurance institution or Federal Benefits Agency

This, of course, excludes acute emergency treatments.

  • Health insurance card
  • Referral certificate (pink)
  • Valid identity documents
  • Doctor’s letters and the findings of any previous examinations
  • Medication you are currently taking (a written list is sufficient)

Criteria for follow-up treatment

So that you will recover quickly from your operation, we also offer rehabilitation in our sister clinics after your stay. Or we will help you to choose a suitable clinic for follow-up treatment in your area. 

Normally, you will be supported in this by ...

  • your treating consultant at the clinic your are currently at

Additional payment

For patients with statutory health insurance who are at least 18 years old and are not exempt from additional payments, legislature specifies that an additional payment of €10 has to be paid for every inpatient treatment day for a maximum of 28 calendar days per year. Please pay the co-pay after receiving the invoice after your inpatient stay. We will then pass on the payment to your health insurance company.
