Outpatient services and treatment

In contrast to inpatient treatment, outpatients do not stay at the hospital over night.

Examples of outpatient treatment:

  • Visits to the doctor's office
  • Treatment by a physiotherapist, ergotherapist or logotherapist
  • Nutrition and diabetes counselling
  • Treatment by nurses
  • Laboratory tests
  • X-ray examinations

Whether basic or supplemental insurance...
