MEDICAL TOURISM AND MEDICAL CARE
THE MEDICAL AIR-LIFT FROM YOUR COUNTRY TO SPAIN
FINALLY, MEDICAL CARE IN OTHER EU COUNTRIES WITH A MEDICAL AIR-LIFT AS AN EXAMPLE OF HOW MEDICAL CARE AND MEDICAL TOURISM SHOULD BE.
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 the Netherlands. 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.
Health is not opposed to medical tourism
Dutch patients and other nationalities who are travelling to Spanish Benidorm for hip or knee surgery can, since September 2010, combine treatments with 3 weeks of rehabilitation in the Dutch Centre MedifitReha, specialised in hip and knee prothesis rehabilitation.
Hospital Clínica Benidorm, Rehabilitation Clinic MedifitReha and the main insurance companies in the Netherlands and other European countries have undersigned a cooperation contract; this transaction opens new markets and offers quality medical and care tourism.
To support this initiative, Hospital Clínica Benidorm and rehabilitation clinic MedifitReha constructed a medical air-lift bridge with the aim of offering good assistance to hip and knee patients from the moment they choose to have surgery abroad till the moment of returning to their home country after the rehabilitation in Spain.
The treatments included in the covenant are mainly directed to hip and knee procedures and rehabilitation.
Extra services include many medical specialisations as well as the cooperation of the regional Ministry of Health.
Your health insurance covers the costs for medical treatments.
We have made agreements with almost all Dutch insurance companies about the treatments in our hospital. When your health costs are covered in the Netherlands then they are also covered in Spain. The costs are covered from the so-called Dutch basic package. Ask us or your own health insurance company for more details.
Air travel, transfers, taxes, possible costs of staying for an assistant, extra meals, costs for a longer stay; all costs will be communicated with you in advance. Travel and costs of staying for the patient are for us. For your assistant we can arrange a considerable discount for the air fare. This assistant can share a room with you in or out the hospital for free. With outside we mean in case you wish to extend your stay before or after your medical treatment. Clínica Hospital Benidorm works in partnership with hotel Prince Park, situated close to the hospital.
No waiting lists
Hospital Clinica Benidorm, in partnership with the Dutch Rehabilitation Centre MedifitReha complies with the demands for the new European Care Laws. You now can count on us for treatments like prothesis surgeries and rehabilitation of knee and hip, even if you have never been in Spain before.
The complete costs for your stay in the medical tourism program will be covered by your insurance company.
Just like in hospitals and rehabilitation centres in the Netherlands, Belgium or elsewhere in Europe, we follow the guidelines concerning diagnostics, treatment, surgery and rehabilitation.
It goes without saying that the Dutch people, Belgians and other ex-pats who are spending the Winter at the Costa Blanca are welcome in our centres for hip or knee surgery in combination with a tailor-made program of physiotherapy and rehabilitation.
