  • You will receive the second opinion within 14 working days.
  • A clear result: confirmation of the planned treatment or alternative treatment suggestions.
  • For persons insured with CONCORDIA who have PRIVATE, SEMIPRIVATE, LIBERO or GENERAL Hospital Insurance, CONCORDIA will assume the costs associated with the second opinion if it is applied for on this website.

Assumption of costs
The planned treatment is a mandatory benefit under mandatory health care insurance legislation (OKP/AOS/AOMS).
