If you are being treated without a prescription then the price is 100 EUR for an hour. It's as simple as that!
If you are making use of a doctor's prescription as a privately insured patient then it is also 100 EUR per hour. A quirk of the German health system means that patients receiving a prescription for physiotherapy from a doctor will notice specific physiotherapeutic treatments will be printed on the prescription. A very typical example would be " 6 x KG, 6 x MT". That means 6 sessions of "Krankengymnastik" or exercise therapy and 6 sessions of "Manuelle Therapie" or manual therapy (that is mobilisation of joints). Regardless of what is printed on the prescription the price reamins 100 EUR per session. Below is the breakdown of the costs to compare against what your insurance policy covers. For each one hour session I charge for one home visit plus two other therapies e.g. 1 x KG and 1 xMT or 2 x KG. Either way, it always adds up to 100 EUR!
Home visit - €20 (per visit)
Manual therapy - €40 (30 mins)
Exercise - €40 (30 mins)
Massage - €40 (30 mins)
Lymph drainage - €40 (30 mins)
Treatment without prescription - €100 (60 min)
I would like that you, as a privately insured person, are reimbursed as much of the costs as possible. However, this varies from policy to policy. Therefore, please check before the first treatment to what extent your health insurance company will reimburse the fee. I would like to point out to you that any differences will be borne by you.
Whether privately insured or paying for a treatment without a prescription, you must pay in cash or by debit card on the day of treatment.
