If you undergo medical treatment as a private patient in another EU country, the foreign healthcare provider, such as a doctor, must issue you with itemised bills with regard to the services that he/she has provided. You can then submit them to your German health insurance fund for reimbursement. You will find more information on this in the column “Who pays?”.
If you are unable to understand individual items on the itemised bill issued by foreign doctor or dentist, or if you feel that the amount of the bill is incorrect, you should contact the National Contact Point of the respective Member State.
If you are undergoing treatment in one of the states mentioned above with authorisation from your health insurance fund in the shape of an E 112 or S2 form, you will receive the same benefits under the same conditions and in the same manner as a person with statutory health insurance in that country.
You will find answers to questions with regard to how these costs are invoiced, as well as to any co-payments you may have to make, in the column “Who pays?”.
