INSURANCE QUESTIONS

OUTPATIENT EXAMINATION AND TREATMENT

The costs are covered by compulsory health insurance for all persons insured in Switzerland. The following examinations and treatments can be carried out on an outpatient basis:

• cardiological, heart and vascular surgery assessments
• all ultrasound examinations of the heart (echocardiography) and the large vessels
• in appropriate situations
   o Heart catheter examinations
   o Balloon dilatations and stent implantations of the coronary vessels
   o Pacemaker operations

The deductible and the mandatory deductible (10%) provided for in the contract are not covered by the health insurance.

INPATIENT EXAMINATION AND TREATMENT

Full cost coverage (minus deductible) by the insurance company, after confirmation of costs.

If you live outside the canton of Zurich, it is worth clarifying your insurance coverage if there is no invasive cardiology and/or heart surgery in your canton of residence.

PROFESSIONAL SERVICE INVOICES

The medical staff of the Heart Center adheres strictly to the agreements made with the health insurance companies, insurances and the Health Department of the Canton of Zurich.

The Clinic Hirslanden also charges for all services at the agreed rates.
