Persons under Austrian health insurance
In general, patients under the Austrian social insurance system are covered by health insurance if the indication complies with the list of indications agreed upon with the Federation of Austrian Social Insurance Institutions. For other indications, individual authorization is required, provided that treatment at MedAustron can be medically justified. For your social insurance institution’s approval, it is a prerequisite that your therapy has been assessed by the responsible tumor board as the medically most suitable form of treatment. MedAustron will then apply to your social insurance institution for cost assumption by means of this positive tumor board decision and your doctor’s letter.

If you are covered by social insurance in another EU country, you can then apply to your health insurance company for cost assumption/reimbursement. Even in countries outside the EU, there are sometimes offers for the assumption or reimbursement of costs. As soon as the approval for the assumption of costs is granted or you yourself bear the treatment costs, our team can begin with your individual therapy planning. Please note: if you are resident outside the EU, a deposit of 100% of the treatment costs must be paid before the start of treatment.
