Patient’s duty to pay

The patient or the health insurance company is obliged to pay the doctor or the treating person for the services. The amount of the remuneration is determined by the professional fee schedule. The payment is due as soon as the doctor has provided the service. This condition results from the treatment contract.

For patients with statutory health insurance, the health insurance company will pay for all services from its catalogue of services if the doctor is under contract with a health insurance company. Services that are not listed in the catalogue of services or that are not fully covered by the health insurance fund must be paid for by the patient.

Private patients initially pay the full cost of the service themselves, after which private health insurance reimburses the costs. For civil servants, the aid office will cover the costs.
