Austria also follows the same guidelines as the German Krankenkasse. This means you can only get a ‘yes’ to an S2 application if the treatment can not take place in Austria in time. If the Austrian insurer agrees, the patient must forward the S2 document to an insurer in the country where the treatment takes place, i.e. Belgium in the case of 2pass Clinic. The level of reimbursement depends on what a Belgian patient would receive in a similar situation.
It is important to note the Austrian health insurance fund explicitly states that the treatment must be approved in advance. There is no guarantee that the health insurance will assume the costs if an application is submitted after the operation.
Please contact your insurance to receive your own S2 application form, then make sure to send it to us. The doctor will make sure you receive all required documents.
