There are various options for billing:
- Patients without private supplementary insurance
You can of course use the services provided in our private hospital on a self-pay basis. Our Billing team will be pleased to help with any enquiries about pricing or estimated costs.
If you have Austrian social insurance, we offer an attractive flat rate for childbirth in our hospital. Please note that our inpatient accommodation fees are also very reasonable for patients with BVA/VAE insurance.
We will require a deposit to be paid on admission to the hospital.
Doctors’ fees should be discussed with your attending doctor.
- Patients with Austrian social insurance and private Austrian supplementary insurance
This type of private health insurance normally covers stays in a double room in this private hospital. In this case, costs are invoiced directly to your private supplementary insurance provider. Where a double room is covered by the policy, it is of course possible to pay an additional charge if you would prefer a single room.
If your private supplementary insurance includes a deductible element, you will receive a final account from our hospital after the insurance company has made its own calculations.
Since details of insurance cover and any possible deductible are determined by your policy, we request that you clarify this with your insurance adviser prior to your hospital stay.
- Patients with private, international health insurance
Before your hospital stay, please clarify with your insurance provider exactly which costs are covered, and to what extent. On admission to the hospital we will require either a written approval from your insurance provider, or a security deposit, unless Goldenes Kreuz has a direct billing agreement with your insurer.
Your hospital stay can be billed direct to all Austrian private health insurers and to almost all Austrian social insurance providers, as well as to many international health insurers.
Direct billing means that the bill for fees and charges incurred during your stay is sent directly from Goldenes Kreuz to the relevant insurance provider.
