Inpatient stay for  direct payers

For direct payers, there are various ways to book an inpatient stay in the hospital:

  • as a true direct payer: You can freely combine the medical and therapeutic benefits or select one of our health programmes in consultation with the physician.
  • as a state-aid authorised employee in government service: Our establishment is recognised by state aid provisions. For approval of an inpatient stay, an official medical examination by a medical officer is necessary, as a rule, in which the need for an inpatient rehabilitation measure is examined. You receive the approval decision from your state aid agency.
  • as direct payer who is entitled to reimbursement by private health insurance: Please check before a stay with your private health insurance whether and to what extent the cost of a stay will be assumed.

You can book the accommodation through our reservations department yourself. At the beginning of your stay, you get a physician's appointment and a stress ECG is done to be able to perform physical activities according to your resilience. During the initial medical examination, the therapeutic regulations will be established and if necessary, further medical tests done.

For the costs of accommodation/meals in the individual hospitals and therapeutic services, please refer to the currently valid price list. The medical services are billed according to the fee rules for physicians (GÖA).
