(Non EU) Most Insurance policies (public or private) cover dialysis treatment expenses in Greek dialysis centers. The account is most commonly settled between the insurance provider and the dialysis center subject to a letter of commitment (or letter of guarantee) issued by the former. In some cases, the holder of the policy (receiver of the treatments) is required to settle the account with the dialysis center and then submit relevant documents to his insurance provider to get reimbursed.
(Private) Patients not covered by any policy for dialysis treatments abroad, should cover the medical expenses account directly in cash, credit card or bank remittance. The cost of treatments vary between destinations. We always work towards guaranteeing the lowest rates available.
