Planned healthcare pertaining to the rules of the EU Agreement

If you choose to visit Germany for planned healthcare pertaining to the rules of the EU Agreement, it is strongly advisable and absolutely mandatory that you seek authorization - before you leave - from your health insurance authority in your home country.


As a general rule, your health insurance in your home country will request detailed information concerning planned treatment. Relevant detailed information will be provided both - by your attending physician in your home country and the hospital in the country where you receive your treatment.
After your health insurance authority in your home country has granted approval for hospital treatment abroad, prior to the use of medical services (treatment), the assisting health insurance company in Germany (for instance AOK) has to review if and to which extent confirmation of assumption of costs will be submitted to the hospital in Germany where you receive your treatment based on the proof of eligibility (generally this will be form E 112 or S2).


Treatment costs will be covered only after assumption of costs has been submitted by the assisting German health insurance company, only then a fixed appointment can be scheduled with the hospital for hospital treatment abroad. For the reasons specified above, inpatient treatment provided by our hospital at the expense of your health insurance company in your home country will only be possible after preconditions are met.
