We are committed to providing accessible osteopathy treatments for all US soldiers, US civilians, and expats. We aim to maximize your insurance benefits with custom invoices for each insurance for the coverage you deserve.
We are serving American soldiers and their families stationed here. We are pleased to inform you that we are a part of the TRICARE medical network, ensuring convenient access to our services covered directly by your insurance.
To initiate your treatment with us, it's essential to obtain a referral from your primary care manager (PCM). The appointment hotline number is 0637 194 645 762, and when prompted, press 1 to schedule a (phone) appointment with your PCM.
For a seamless referral process, it is crucial to specify the provider as "SCHRIMPF, Niklas" and the specialty as "Osteopathic Medicine" on the "Authorization for Care" form. Typically, a prescription of 30 sessions is recommended.
Once your referral is confirmed we will contact you for an appointment. All billing will be conveniently handled through TRICARE. They will take care of the billing process on your behalf, providing a seamless experience for you.
In the event that you're experiencing acute pain and require immediate attention, we will still provide the necessary treatment. We will send you an invoice, which can often be refunded as well.
In addition to serving American soldiers through TRICARE, we are pleased to extend our services to US civilians covered by the American Foreign Services Benefits Plan (AFSBP) or Blue Cross. While we cannot guarantee refunds, we will create detailed invoices that are usually fully covered by these insurance plans.
Osteopathic treatments are not only covered by private and supplementary insurances, but they can also receive subsidies from many public health insurances. Typically, these refunds contribute €40 to €60 for each treatment covering up to six sessions per calendar year.
Our pricing structure for osteopathy is as follows:
€95 per treatment, lasting up to 45 minutes. For instance, with AOK Hessen, there is a co-payment of €45 for each of the first three sessions. You only require a private prescription or a recommendation from any kind physician.
For privately insured individuals, we adhere to the GebüH (Fee Schedule for Alternative Practitioners) for billing purposes. The fee is approximately €109.60, designed to ensure optimal reimbursement from private health insurance (PKV) or civil service insurance (Beihilfe), following the prescribed fee codes.
If you have any questions regarding the co-payments or payment process, please do not hesitate to reach out to us. We are here to assist you and provide the necessary information to make your experience as smooth and transparent as possible.
To facilitate convenient payment, we offer the option to settle your bill directly using a debit or credit card. The invoice is immediately sent to you via email. For invoices per mail with a payment deadline, a €6 surcharge will be applied.
