Legal and treatment costs

Information and consent

You have the right to be informed in detail about everything that happens to you. The doctors and staff of the clinic will provide you with the best possible information about your illness and treatment. If you are still not completely clear about something, please ask and have everything explained to you in detail again. You must agree with the treatment and express this agreement in writing. This consent can only be waived in life-threatening emergencies that require rapid intervention.

All employees of the clinic are subject to the duty of confidentiality. We must maintain secrecy towards third parties about your illness and everything you entrust to us. However, if you wish, you can release your doctor from his duty of confidentiality - he can then provide information to the persons you have named.

Help and advice

The following contact points will help you in case of conflict or difficult questions.

In a living will, you can specify in writing how you wish to be treated medically in a situation where you can no longer decide for yourself. In this way, you can influence the treatment even if you are unable to make a decision and thus maintain your right to self-determination.

Own contribution and treatment costs

Flat rate per case system DRG / PEPP

According to the legal drafts, general hospital services are generally invoiced via Diagnosis Related Groups (DRG). According to the DRG system, treatment costs are calculated according to the individual circumstances of the case. In the fields of psychiatry and psychosomatics, flat-rate payments (PEPP) are mainly charged on the basis of valuation ratios.

co-payment by patients with statutory health insurance

As a co-payment, the University Hospital collects a co-payment from patients with statutory health insurance from the beginning of full inpatient hospital treatment - within a calendar year for a maximum of 28 days. The co-payment is currently 10,- Euro per calendar day. This amount is paid by the University Hospital to the corresponding member health insurance company.

Optional services

Additional benefits and optional services

While general hospital services such as accommodation, meals or medical care via the doctor on duty ensure medically appropriate and sufficient care for every patient in the hospital, optional services go beyond the necessary care. These include optional services of medical and medical care (head physician contract) or accommodation in a comfort ward or in a comfort room.

Elective services are available to privately insured persons, self-payers and those with statutory health insurance. Please clarify with your health insurance company in good time before signing the contract to what extent you are insured for the additional services. Legally binding information on hospital costs and tariff questions can only be obtained from the administration of the University Hospital.
