Going to a Physician

Specialists in Potsdam rarely have short-term appointments available. You can often get an earlier appointment with a specialist in Berlin.

Your first step as a patient is to see your general practitioner. If you have urgent problems, you can go, without an appointment, to the office hours of your physician of choice.

If you have specific problems that a general practitioner cannot solve, then he will provide you with a referral to a specialist. Then you will have to make an appointment in advance with a specialist.

Costs

Physicians will sometimes offer you "IGEL" (individual health services) benefits. If you would like to take advantage of these special services, you will have to bear the costs yourself. Public health insurance companies will not pay for these services.

If you are insured by a public health insurance company, a visit to a physician will not cost you anything. Physicians send their invoices directly to your health insurance company.

If you are privately insured, your physician will issue the invoice to you. You will then pay the invoice directly. You can send the invoice to your private health insurance company and have the amount reimbursed, up to the contractually stipulated amount.
