Benefits based on prior agreement or approval

In some cases, a medical costs projection is a necessary precondition for a 100% reimbursement of the reimbursable treatment expenses. You must provide us with a medical costs projection prior to the planned treatment in the following cases:

Outpatient treatment:

  • allergy tests.

Dental treatment:
