Do you live in England and need to see a specialist doctor, undergo diagnostics or surgical treatment? Are you stuck in the NHS waiting lines? We will help you organize your treatment in Poland – highest quality, in private clinics and with full or partial refund of treatment costs by the NHS.
Patients must be ordinarily resident in England and entitled to treatment on the NHS. Permanent residency card is not required.
The treatment is the same as or equivalent to a treatment that would be made available to you on the NHS. Only in exceptional circumstances will NHS England approve other forms of treatment –this will require prior authorisation.
The healthcare provider is based in another EEA (EU, Norway, Lichtenstein, Iceland) country and provides the treatment.
The medical service must be necessary to diagnose or cure disease. The medical need for treatment is assessed by the doctor in Poland, the referral from your GP is not a requirement.
Med4EU organises treatment in private medical institutions in Poland, with subsequent medical cost reimbursement from the NHS.
In light of the EU Cross-border Healthcare Directive, patients first pay for the treatment abroad themselves, and then the costs are reimbursed by national health funds (in this case, the NHS).
Patients who are unable to cover their own medical expenses may benefit from a medical loan that is later repaid using the NHS refund.
Med4EU fully supports the administrative side of the medical cost recovery from the NHS – starting with preparing the application, through translating all necessary documentation to actual NHS reimbursement. This saves you time and reduces your financial contribution to the absolute minimum.
Instead of receiving treatment in state NHS hospitals, with MEd4EU patients gain access to modern clinics and the best specialists in Poland.
We only partner with clinics that handle every stage of the treatment process: from initial consultations, through diagnostics, all the way to rehabilitation.
Our clinics will schedule all your appointments so that they are in a short timeframe – perfect for when you are only visiting Poland.
