The toolbox of the European Commission contains relevant information on the legal framework of cross-border healthcare - including checklists for patients, Patient Organisations and healthcare providers.
EU-PATIENTEN.DE is a non-competitive platform for providing information to patients and healthcare providers to answer questions all about cross-border healthcare between Germany and other EU countries.
EU-PATIENTEN.DE, the National Contact Point for cross-border healthcare, is a new task within the DVKA. We will tell you who is responsible for what and where you can find more information for your insured persons when treatment is planned to take place in other Member States.
What rights do patients have who come to Germany from other EU States for treatment? What must be borne in mind if you wish to issue a prescription to such persons, and how are the costs billed?
