PRIVATE HEALTH CARE
About Surgery Costs and Payment of Hospital / Clinic Services

Private patients must typically pay cash for consultation after visits, but the payment for the operation must be in cash advance. At surgery, payment will typically be paid within 10 days before surgery. Insurance Patients: For patients covered by Private Health Insurance, please ensure you have pre authorization from your health care provider before coming into hospital. For self-funded patients, you will be required to pay the full cost of your procedure before coming into hospital. This can be paid for by credit or debit card or by Personal Healthcare Loans (Installment Loan). Ask the Hospital about the possibilities.

Cosmetic or curative surgery - a subjective assessment

For plastic surgery and cosmetic surgery may be covered by public health insurance is assumed that a given operation is justified by health reasons. The reasoning may also be that your physical discomfort falls outside the "normal range" or the doctor can see that this problem generation and for example prevent a normal life and / or cohabitation. So that you may be eligible for funding from the state required an initial assessment / referral from your doctor. For the doctor can give one such, as mentioned be a nuisance that limits you physically or can be described as "abnormal" or impede a normal life or cohabitation. A subjective assessment, which may depend on which doctor you ask.

Payable plastic surgery and cosmetic surgery of the public?

No, basically covers the public health insurance not cosmetic surgery, since such operations are generally self-selected. No distinction on the one hand between a physical nuisance, and on the other hand, whether a treatment can be described as a psychological or cosmetic concern. There are some exceptions and 'gray areas'.

When paid and performed breast surgery in the public sector?

Breast Plastic. A breast enlargement surgery is perceived as a cosmetic, so you have to pay. In contrast, malformations such as congenital asymmetry an operation following a referral from a GP out of direct labor, when surgery is not considered cosmetic. Similarly, breast reconstruction after surgery for breast cancer is not cosmetic, and thus an operation performed in public hospitals.
