Private doctors and self-pay services

The doctor search also shows doctors who only Private patients or treat self-payers who work exclusively on the basis of reimbursement. Reimbursement means that you first have to pay the invoice yourself. Also so-called private medical services (also called “individual health services” or IGeL) that you have to pay in full or in part yourself are displayed. You will be informed with the symbol "i" if there are any special features in the assumption of costs.

Special care offers from the AOK

The AOK offers its insured persons special medical care offers. These offers are marked as "AOK offers". The structured treatment programs “AOK Curaplan” are offered especially for chronically ill patients.

Patient admission, appointments and waiting times

In order to save you unsuccessful phone calls to make an appointment, we asked the doctors in advance whether they would accept new patients and how long the approximate waiting time for an appointment would be. Corresponding information can be found - provided the doctors have given us feedback - in the detailed profiles of the doctors.

Reviews by patients

Often we are after the Reviews of doctors asked by other patients. Since the effort for a fair, tamper-proof and meaningful doctor evaluation is very high, we currently do not offer any evaluations by doctors.

Commitment to quality of care

The AOK advocates a high medical standard Quality of care a. Together with several doctor networks, she has therefore started an initiative to support committed doctors in reflecting on their work and thereby improving patient care. For this purpose, the doctors are provided with evaluations of anonymized health insurance data on their patients and compared with the recommendations of the medical associations. For example, patients should not take too many drugs at the same time, as this increases the risk of interactions. The AOK analyzes the billing data of the pharmacies and reports back to the participating doctors how many of their patients are taking more than seven drugs at the same time. Doctors who take part in this project can be recognized by the so-called "QuATRo award". The abbreviation QuATRo stands for "Quality in doctor networks - transparency with routine data".

Outpatient specialist medical care

There is a special offer for patients suffering from a serious or rare disease: the outpatient specialist medical care (ASV). Treatment is carried out by interdisciplinary teams of doctors in practices and clinics. Contract doctors and hospital doctors jointly take on highly specialized outpatient care - and all under the same general conditions. The ASV encompasses the diagnosis and treatment of complex diseases that are difficult to treat. These include:

  • severe forms of diseases with particular disease courses, for example oncological diseases, rheumatism and heart failure
  • rare diseases and disease states with correspondingly low case numbers, for example tuberculosis, Marfan's syndrome, cystic fibrosis
  • highly specialized services, for example CT / MRT-supported interventional pain therapy services.

Information on ASV participation can be found in the doctors' detailed profiles.

How to find the right in-service doctor

Accidents at work, commuting accidents and accidents on the way to school and many other accidents fall within the scope of the statutory accident insurance. The accident insurance company names so-called "transit doctors" who must have special accident medical qualifications and practice equipment. The in-service doctor has the task of determining the further course of therapy after the diagnosis has been made. He decides which other specialists need to be involved or whether he treats the patient himself. In the event of an accident (cf. § 2 SGB VII and § 8 Abs. 2 SGB VII) you first visit another doctor, he will take care of you, but then refer you to a transit doctor.
