Reasons for restricting the free choice of hospital
CSS wants to protect its clients from bills that lack transparency and charge unreasonably high prices. It should always be clear which services are paid for under basic insurance or supplementary insurance. We make this a key point of all our contract negotiations with each and every hospital. If we cannot agree a solution, then we prefer not to collaborate with that particular hospital for the present – this can lead to cost coverage being restricted.
We also choose not to work with hospitals offering treatment that is not covered by mandatory basic insurance. Because, as the name suggests, supplementary insurance provides cover that supplements these benefits.
Check the hospital list to see whether there are any restrictions in place for your hospital.
