Sanitas Preference services

Your personal customer advisor supports you not only before admission to hospital or when you have to undergo medical treatment, but with all health-related matters. If you have any questions or would like to take advantage of one of the Sanitas Preference services, please contact your personal advisor. They will put you in touch with the right person or arrange an appointment for you.

Faster access to specialists

Specialists are often booked out for months in advance. With Hospital Extra Liberty semiprivate supplementary hospital insurance, you don’t have to wait long for an appointment. Thanks to the Priority Access service you’ll receive an appointment to see a specialist within just seven days.

Second medical opinion

A second medical opinion can help when you’re faced with the prospect of a complicated medical procedure. Your customer advisor will put you in touch with a Medgate doctor to get an independent second opinion.

Peace of mind on admission to hospital

A stay in hospital always involves organisation. Your customer advisor will be happy to help you arrange your stay, starting from helping you choose the best hospital, doctor and method of treatment right through to organising your trip to hospital.

Liberty Option

This option gives you the flexibility to choose a higher or lower category hospital ward each time you’re admitted to hospital. We’ll be happy to help you decide before each hospital stay whether it makes sense for you to change ward.

Sanitas Assistance

Before a trip you can contact Sanitas Assistance for information on the entry and vaccination requirements for your destination. And during your trip you can rest assured that Sanitas Assistance will offer fast and straightforward support in the event of emergencies abroad.
