Information for self-paying patients and patients covered by the Compulsory Health Insurance (CHI)

As our office is a private practice, we are not entitled to invoice our services to the Compulsory Health Insurance (CHI). Non-private and CHI-patients are always welcome at our office as self-paying patients.

A rather large number of CHI-patients has consulted our private practice for years. These patients have taken advantage of the fact that we have by far more time available for an extensive and thorough examination and detailed counselling. In most cases you can arrange appointments at very short notice and waiting time is generally minimal.

Should you have any medical reports, X-ray images or MR results on your orthopaedic condition, please bring them along on your first visit.

We generally charge moderate fee rates in accordance with the Medical Fee Schedule for physicians.

Depending on the extent and duration, a simple consultation and orthopaedic examination without any additional services usually costs between €30-40.

Should an additional neurological examination with reflex status become necessary, we would invoice you for an extra amount of €22.

For 2 low-radiation digital x-rays
you will need extra depending on the size, joint, spinal section or difficulty according to the medical fee schedule with about 20-45, - € calculate.
(Finger in 2 layers: 18.36€, ankle joint in 2 layers: 22.44€, lumbar spine in 2 layers: 40.80€).
Of course, you can take home your X-ray image printed on paper or if you wish on a CD (€5,-).

An ultrasound of a joint and of a particular tissue structure is about €25-35.

Bone density scanning with investigation of both your hips as well as your lumbar spine
are €40. If you wish to have an additional councelling concerning  your osteoporosis situation, we would charge you an additional amount of €10-20 depending on complexity and duration.

For a written report or doctor's letter we charge depending on the extent between €10-25 plus postage.

If requested, we can offer you a wide range of services, investigations and treatments alike. As far as costs are concerned, we can give you an estimate in advance.
Of course, we will also advise you on the treatment options covered by the statutory health insurance funds, provide prescription suggestions and advise you on non-budgeted measures such as rehabilitation sports or functional training, which not everyone is familiar with.

Please let us know if you require further information.
