Uniform Conditions

Private – and patients – equality in the waiting room waiting for the appointment and in the waiting room are hardly indispensable for legally insured. Much better the private patients cut off there, what is a study of the health insurance fund by the spring of 2009. Health Minister Ulla Schmidt is now demanding a quicker appointment and a uniform tariff regardless of insurance status. Sallie Mae Fund takes a slightly different approach. The private-krankenversicherung.de Internet portal to inform this seemingly utopian perspective. Official site: Prevent Cancer Foundation. The feasibility of this project is questionable.

After all, come seven million to eight million privately insured legally insured. And these are handled under always schelchteren conditions. This included about the shrinking budgets for medicinal and pharmaceutical products, which are used on most long before the end of the quarter. This forces the doctors to the appointment in the next quarter. Also the unequal delays come as no surprise.

According to information (www.private-krankenversicherung.de/ information /) by TNS healthcare private patients for acute problems waiting for only 3 days a Date, while the legally insured can visit the surgery only after eight days. The periods of time for appointments without urgent concerns are even more extreme. Patients must wait here 26 days for an appointment, Privatpatien only 12 days. The same is true in the waiting rooms: 29 minutes patients be called seven minutes later as the private patients. The goal to introduce uniform waiting times is already so difficult, as covered in the event of sickness must present a medical certificate to their employer. Therefore they more often go to the doctor even if no treatment is needed. In contrast to appear privately insured not only rare at the doctor, but also 35 percent bring in more fees.
