You’ve been approved for proton therapy but you cannot afford to pay for it yourself? Proton Therapy Center Czech offers affordable costs of treatment for everybody; however, we provide you with some helpful tips and models of insurance coverage that work within European Union and other world.

Reimbursement schemes within EU

Foreign patients from E.U. countries can ask for the reimbursement of the treatment under:

  • The S2 route (or E112) - direct arrangement between your insurance company and the state healthcare provider in the country of your choice. Prior approval is required.
  • The EU Directive on cross-border healthcare (or Article 56) - generally, you pay the costs of treatment abroad and then claim reimbursement from your health care provider when you return. Prior approval might be required.

Non-EU Patients

Contact us for a nonbiding consultation. Get a referral from our specialist which clearly says why proton therapy is the right choice for you. We communicate with your oncologist and ask for his oppinion. You contact your health insurance company with our referral and a referral from your specialist at home.

WHY PROTON THERAPY?

Many patients who have chosen proton therapy for cancer treatment report that the treatment presents few interruptions to normal daily activity. In fact, many proton treatment patients continue to work, enjoy time with family, and participate in favourite activities while undergoing cancer treatment.
Proton radiation therapy targets cancer more accurately. Unlike traditional X-rays, protons can be directed to reach only the areas of the body affected by cancer. As a result, normal, healthy tissue receives less exposure to radiation treatment, reducing the risk of complications. Proton therapy is a cancer treatment that targets tumours with high accuracy, allowing for favourable outcomes with a low risk of side effects.
