IGeL – Individual Health Services
More and more doctors offer additional services. These services are called “IGeL”. IGeL are methods of diagnosis, prevention and treatments that are not covered by the statutory health insurance.
Individual health services cover medical services that, by law, are not included in the range of benefits offered by statutory health insurance and which you, as the insured person, are required to pay for yourself at the doctor’s. These services will be offered to you at the doctor’s, in addition to the contractual benefits, for example by way of brochures, television or in a personal consultation.
