“Aftercare insurance or follow-up insurance” is a type of insurance that is usually used in a medical context. It covers the costs of medical treatment, care and follow-up after a specific medical intervention, surgery or medical procedure.
This insurance can be used to cover unexpected costs and expenses that may arise in connection with the recovery and healing process after medical treatment.
The exact conditions, scope of coverage and exclusions of aftercare insurance may vary depending on the insurance company and the specific medical procedures.
As an agency, we generally recommend taking out aftercare insurance so that you can have any medically necessary treatments after an operation abroad carried out in Germany free of charge. You will find various insurance providers for aftercare insurance on the Internet.
It is important to carefully review the terms of the insurance and possibly speak to an insurance advisor or medical subject matter expert to ensure you have a proper understanding of what is covered by the insurance.
