General practitioner model/HMO model BeneFit PLUS
With the general practitioner model, you always contact your selected GP or HMO group practice for any health problems. Your physician works with you to determine the next steps in terms of treatment and, if necessary, refers you to a specialist or hospital.
As a result, you benefit from the optimal coordination of your medical treatment and get attractive premium discounts. The medical benefits are the same as with standard basic insurance.
With the general practitioner model, all treatment is coordinated by your GP/group practice – this prevents unnecessary duplicate examinations.
