Billing

Since 2003, a DRG-case package system (Diagnosis Related Groups) was intro-duced in Germany, similar to the system applied, for example, in the United States, Australia, as well as in several European countries. The majority of the akut-hospitals discounts DRG-case packages. The amount of the DRG-case packages is based on the type of disease (diagnosis), operation, and severity of the disease. A patient with a mild disease is charged less than a patient with a severe disease, which is difficult to treat. A well-defined disease and its treatment is compensated according to a certain range of the length of hospitalization. The same package will be paid within this range, regardless of the patient´s actual length of hospitalization. The amount of the case allowance is calculated based on an average period of hos-pitalization within this range. Case allowances for patients with a significantly long-er or shorter period of hospitalization are usually subject to additional charges or discounts on the case rates.

In the case of narrowly defined exceptional cases and wherever required for appro-priate compensation, additional charges can be levied additionally to the case al-lowance for extensive medication, individual services and groups of services. The calculation of case allowances and additional fees is based on the performance and cost data of German hospitals.

To make your stay at the Weser-Egge Clinic as comfortable as possible, you can book fee-based optional services, additionally to the standard services. This in-cludes treatment by the Chief Medical Officer and all other physicians of the hospital authorized to invoice, accommodation in a ¬single or two-bed room, the accommoda-tion of an accompanying person, use of the phone and wireless Internet services.

You are usually liable for payment if you do not subscribe to a private health insur-ance plan or a private additional insurance plan, which covers the costs.

The granting of optional services is subject to contractual agreement between the patient and the hospital. This usually occurs on admission to the clinic; however, it can be also arranged if you decide to book optional services at a later point.

Personnel at patient admission are pleased to remain at your disposal for further in-formation.
