HOW DOES IT WORK?
General information: Medical rehabilitation in Spain.
More and more patients do not want to be any longer on a waiting list and prefer a treatment abroad. Medical surgery in a foreign hospital or rehabilitation centre is being covered nowadays by several insurance companies. Hospital Clínica Benidorm (HCB) and rehabilitation centre MedifitReha constructed a medical airbridge to offer medical treatment for patients from all over the world. You are also welcome as an ex-pat already living in Spain.
Thanks to the new European laws for care it has become an option for patients to choose themselves in which country of the European Union they wish to be treated, provided that the quality is equal or better than in their own country. Our organisation complies with those two demands and thus we can offer you our services based upon the European Care Laws, without any waiting list.
STEP 1) DIAGNOSIS
You have complaints and you need rehabilitation. First you need to visit a (rehabilitation) doctor who investigates you and can write a recommendation letter. In this letter should be indicated which rehabilitation regime is recommended for your personal situation and whether this should be performed as in- or out patient. This all can also be done by our rehabilitation doctor.
STEP 2) THE COSTS
Your medical insurance might cover the costs of medical care abroad.
Our administration department with lots of experience will contact your medical insurance company if necessary and will try to get your insurance company to cover as much as possible your medical costs.
We have contacts with lots of international insurance companies which allows us to negotiate with these companies. We do need your consent, letter of your (rehabilitation)doctor and all other medical reports to apply for permission from your insurance company. Usually there is a response within 10 working days provided that the (rehabilitation) doctor gave an adequate indication.
STEP 3) PREPARATIONS
We take care of the following:
- permission from your insurance company, if possible
- transport between the airport and the rehabilitation centre
- from personal assistance till the financial arrangements
STEP 4) YOUR TRIP
You fly to Alicante or Valencia airport. Upon arrival you will be met by one of our team members who will take you to our rehabilitation centre. Rehabilitation Centre MedifitReha is about a one hour’s drive from either airport. On the day of your return we will drive you back to Alicante or Valencia airport.
We will personally assist you and one of our team members will help you settle in our rehabilitation centre.
The centre is situated in the most beautiful coastal town of the Costa Blanca: ‘Teulada – Moraira’. Your partner/assistant is welcome to stay with you against a small daily supplement.
STEP 5) REHABILITATION PROGRAM
The first day of your rehabilitation regime always starts with a consultation with our rehabilitation doctor. The doctor will then discuss the options with you and the team. Usually you start the next day with your program and you will have regular evaluation sessions with the rehabilitation doctor and a therapist. The goal is always to adapt your regime to what you need at a certain moment.
