Prices are in euros and subject to change
You only pay for the medications you pick up from your pharmacy. These costs will usually be somewhere between EUR 75 and EUR 150 and are usually covered by your basic health insurance. Note, this might not fall within the mandatory excess charge stated in your health insurance.
Do you want to go for a procedure which restores visual freedom but money is an issue, a payment plan could be the solution for you. This allows you to pay for your treatment over a number of months instead of paying the full amount in one lump sum. Please note that charges apply.
It’s possible that your insurance could cover some of the costs if you have a medical referral. During the consultation, your eye specialist will establish whether or not you have a medical referral that will enable you to claim all or some of the costs of your treatment under your basic health insurance. This could be because you have high refractive errors and are unable to wear contact lenses. Your health insurer will decide on the exact amount covered.
If your treatment outcome falls short of the clarity of vision previously assessed and determined, you will be able to have a possibility of a repeat treatment free of charge. However, this must be medically responsible and your residual strength must be affecting your daily life.
