Everything you need to know about refunds for medical expenses
Pre-admission and post-discharge medical expenses
In most cases, a hospital stay is not an isolated incident. Preliminary diagnostics as well as specific post-discharge treatment are usually required. With your Hospicare hospital plan, we cover the medical expenses you incur in connection with an inpatient stay for a set pre-admission and post-discharge period. Depending on the terms of your policy, this period is 1+3 months or 2+6 months. For example, 1+3: for a hospital stay from 10-15 June, we cover the cost of pre-admission and post-discharge treatment from 9 May to 16 September. In case you are undergoing treatment for a
critical illness, Hospicare will cover your costs all year round.
Outpatient medical care
Not all outpatient medical expenses are related to a recent hospital stay. If you have Ambucare Flexible outpatient care coverage through your employer, you will be entitled to claim a refund for
co-payments and supplemental charges for outpatient services, year-round. Be sure to check whether your employer provides this additional coverage!
Claiming a refund for your medical expenses
Step 1: File all receipts, invoices and claim payment summaries from the Sickness Fund. No need to send in the green treatment forms issued by your GP or specialist – these should be submitted to your Sickness Fund for payment.
