Prof. Weber runs his practice as an optional physician (“Wahlarzt“). This implies that he does not have any contracts with individual health insurance companies. However, this has several advantages for patients:
- Short duration for getting an appointment
- Sufficient amount of time for each individual patient
- Short waiting times
Following each consultation every patient receives a fee note, which can be submitted to the health insurance. The general health insurance usually refunds a part of these costs. In persons with private additional insurance coverage (“Zusatzversicherung“) also the remaining part will usually be covered by the other insurance company. The fees are usually between 80 and 180 Euros per consultation depending on the actual examinations and/or treatments performed.
