Why is a lower fee charged for self-pay patients than for private patients?
the costs of examinations and consultations as well as laboratory tests during pregnancy are only covered by statutory health insurance if there is a medical necessity (indication). If there is no such indication, your doctor may not prescribe the relevant examination by means of a referral.
However, there is the possibility that we may treat this as a non-contractual performance. In this case, we will prepare a corresponding private liquidation in accordance with the "Gebührenordnung für Ärzte" (GOÄ). We have compiled the costs of the most common examinations in the following overview.
