EUROPEAN PATIENT RIGHTS
European Commission initiative on patients' rights in cross-border healthcare.
Most patients receive the healthcare they need in their home country. However, sometimes the necessary and best care is only available abroad. In these cases, the nearest highly specialized treatment or most appropriate medical facility may be in border regions or across state lines.
The current guidelines for cross-border healthcare and reimbursement are not always easy to understand. Therefore, the European Commission has prepared a legislative proposal to clarify the treatment options in European countries. The draft also clarifies the distribution of responsibilities for quality assurance and safety in cross-border healthcare. The European Commission promotes cooperation between different health care sectors and centers.
The proposed legislation aims to provide patients with the healthcare they need on the one hand, and to encourage member states to guarantee access, quality and financial sustainability of healthcare systems on the other.

ADELI Medical Center cannot guarantee that your health insurance will reimburse the cost of treatment. You can inquire about reimbursement options during your stay at ADELI Medical Center. Some European insurance companies reimburse treatment costs under certain conditions.
CROSS-BORDER HEALTH CARE
Several factors contribute to the increasing interconnectedness of health policies and systems within the European Union:
Directive 2011/24/EU on the exercise of patients' rights in cross-border healthcare provides clarity on the regulation of access to healthcare in another EU country and the right to reimbursement for these services.
EU countries must adopt their laws to implement the directive by October 25, 2013.

LAW AND HEALTH INSURANCE
Reimbursement from health insurance companies
The European Commission's new directive of February 2011 on "Patients' Rights in Cross-Border Healthcare" allows patients to be reimbursed for a stay at the ADELI Medical Center.
This directive clarifies that patients have a right to access safe, high-quality healthcare abroad in the EU, as well as to be reimbursed for the services they receive. Importantly, patients now have the right to choose their healthcare provider and, in particular, travel for the treatment of rare conditions and diseases can no longer be refused.
The first prerequisite is, of course, proof of the necessity or appropriateness of the rehabilitation - a a prescription from the attending physician. A person cannot use any medical service at home or abroad without the doctor's prior confirmation of the need for it. The prescription usually specifies the disease or condition, the recommended treatment with its extent and duration, and the purpose - for example, to prevent the disease from worsening or to improve the patient's condition.
There are TWO types of treatment: outpatient and inpatient.*
* Outpatient care can be received by patients abroad without prior authorization under the new policy.
A planned inpatient stay still requires prior authorization. This authorization may only be denied in the following cases if:
It is recommended that the use of the common but misleading terms "ADELI therapy," "ADELI treatment," or "ADELI method" be avoided in any instance.
Officially, a stay at the ADELI Medical Center is an intensive, neurological rehabilitation. Within the framework of this neurorehabilitation and according to the state licenses of our institute, recognized medical services are provided, such as physiotherapy, speech therapy, proprioception, occupational therapy, neurophysiology or several types of electro- and magnetic stimulation. The rehabilitation program can be seen in the cost estimate and should be passed on accordingly. If you want to abbreviate the numerous services of the ADELI Medical Center to "ADELI Therapy", you should be aware that this type of treatment is not included in the range of services or benefits offered by health insurance companies.
Patients can only apply for cost coverage or a cost subsidy after the rehabilitation has taken place and has been paid for. Please note that the health insurance company will cover the costs of each treatment unit according to their own tariffs paid. This means that neither tariffs of ADELI Medical Center nor Slovak health insurance companies are valid for reimbursement.
Some health insurance companies require an application form, which you can get from your contact person at the insurance company. Other required documents are: the medical prescription/referral, our original invoice listing all services and our medical reports on the procedures performed, which should be attached to the application.
In case of rejection
Don't be annoyed, there are only people working at the health insurance company. It may be that the new legal regulations, although binding, have not yet been integrated into the system.
Please keep only written correspondence and collect all documents. collect all documents from correspondence with the health insurance company, please also make copies of your own letters.
