Our Private practice offers you individual medicine

 

Private medicine is more than standard care; a one-size-fits-all approach in medicine is not our way. We take time and care to ensure that you can take part in your wellbeing and health.

 

Please note: Our practice is already rather full.

Dr Struck right now only takes on a handful of new patients for infertility and recurrent miscarriages at the beginning of each quarter. Her schedule for regular gynaecological patients is already too full. Dr Struck takes once to twice a month a whole half-day of consultation hours to work intensely with an infertility couple. Please book a video-appointment with me if you want more information on our Precious Pregnancies Programme

Dr Prestin takes new patients for regular gynaecological care at the beginning of each quarter. If you are entirely new in Kiel and pregnant without having a gynaecologist, she´ll always find a space for you. 

Billing & Payment

Billing will be according to the fixed scale of charges for Physicians (GOÄ). Long sessions where we will solely talk, e.g. to find the right homoeopathic medication may not be covered entirely by German Private Health Insurance or your Travel Insurance. Still, we will give you detailed warning beforehand if this should be the case.

 All accounts will be stated once a month, and the bills send via Mail (snail). You have a fortnight to settle the bill. It is not necessary to pay directly with cash when you are in the office, and we do not have a credit card machine. If you want a menstrual cup, diaphragm, or herbal creams available in the office, you can pay cash or recieve a bill.

Are you insured with German private health insurance?

Does any German private health insurance cover you? Then you will be reimbursed for nearly all our examinations and therapies. We bill all tests like Check-ups with pap smear-test, ultrasound and treatments with the 2,3-fold factor unless it is very difficult or time-consuming, then we charge the 3,5-fold factor, as it is standard procedure. If you come to see us for only for history taking, advice or counselling (talking medicine without examinations) we will bill the time used with a higher factor. Our Bills base on the fixed scale of charges for Physicians (GOÄ = Gebührenordnung für Ärzte) and the Hufelandverzeichnis (List of procedures in natural medicine).

Please note that for lengthy consultations your insurance might not cover the “talk part” just the examinations. Unfortunately, German private health insurances do not support “speaking medicine” unless a psychiatrist or psychologist does it. They also do not believe in slow medicine

Are you insured with foreign private health insurance?

Please let us know in advance about what will be covered by your insurance. Students often have a little card stating which GOÄ-factors will be accepted. If you are just for several months in Germany, some medical procedures like antenatal care/pregnancy surveillance might not be covered.

Are you not insured for healthcare within Germany? Of course, you can visit us too!

You will have to pay for any visit here by yourself. But then, how much does an appointment in our private practice cost you? If you book a consultation for 30 minutes, it will be around 200,-€. More if we have to do a lot of examinations, ultrasound, microscopic evaluation of the vaginal flora and hormonal status of the vaginal-wall-cells, lab-tests within the colposcopy or medicaments that we use for injections and the like it will be up to 250,- €.

Additionally, to our fees, there might be costs for external laboratories like blood tests. If that is needed, we will tell you how much it will be. For example, homocysteine in the blood (in the case of recurrent miscarriage) will cost about 26,- € in our laboratory. For a complete hormone panel for infertility: TSH, free T3, free T4, Prolactin, LH, FSH, Estrogen, Progesterone, free Testosterone, DHEA-S and AMH (Anti-Mullerian-Hormone) the lab fee will be around 200,- €

Why can’t we tell exactly in advance: because by law we are required to use the fixed scale of charges for physicians, meaning after the consultation we have to state every procedure that was performed and then write a bill accordingly. Fixed rates are not allowed by German law.

Standardized procedures like having an IUD fitted with ultrasound measurement of the uterine cavity, ultrasound placement check afterwards will cost you between 300,- and 450,- € depending on the type of IUD chosen. Whether it is an IUD for five years of usage, ten years of usage, Gynefix or T-shape-model, we will discuss with you on your first visit. 

Usually, we like to see our patients every three to six month for a reevaluation of herbal or hormonal therapies as some information is not verbally. Still, we sometimes need to get a “feel” for the energy of the patient, see the skin colour, posture muscle tonus and a lot of other hints. Is there a sparkle I the eye and a spring in the step or still lacking?

Since the Corona-pandemic we also can offer long Video-Appointments for infertility if examinations have been made before by external doctors. 

Are you insured with German statutory health insurance (SHI) like AOK, TK, BEK and the like?

We are sorry, but we cannot send bills to any German “Gesetzliche Krankenversicherung” as we have not bought a licence to do so. You will have to pay for any visit here by yourself.
