Private hospitals and choice of health care provider
Henner gives you free choice of health care provider. Obviously you also have access to private clinics. According to policy conditions, you should contact Henner prior to a planned treatment in order to get "prior agreement". Therefore you need to complete a form and send this to Henner. On this page you can find the procedure to obtain a Prior Agreement. They will also try to arrange a direct billing when the health care provider is included in their network. Needless to say, when it doesn't concern a planned treatment, but urgently needed medical care (e.g. in case of an accident) then the Prior Agreement is not demanded. You or someone close to you, should contact Henner as soon as possible if this happens.
Apply for the insurance
Just complete the application form including the medical questionnaire that is available on this website. The procedure is as follows: you print the form, fill out all relevant and mandatory questions, scan the document, scan the passport of every person to be insured and email all that to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will make sure that your application will get to the right person. In case you want to add the Temporary or Permanent Disability Insurance to your plan, make sure that you add a confirmation of income, such as a payroll slip or a copy of the employment contract which states your salary.
The medical questions, part of the application form, are mandatory questions. Based on this, the medical board of the insurance company will assess whether they want to provide you insurance and whether they want to apply clauses (exclusion or premium supplement for example). It is possible that the medical board requires some additional information, they will contact you directly in that case.
