Please also ask your health insurance company for a list of contracted physicians.
For all doctors in Liechtenstein, you should first arrange an appointment by phone. Due to certain framework conditions within the Liechtenstein healthcare system, you may face a situation where the doctor contacted does not wish to take you on as a new patient. In this case, please contact a specialist colleague. When visiting a new doctor for the first time, you will have to complete a form listing all your personal data, insurance information, health insurance provider and general state of health.
The payment of doctor's bills/medicines is handled differently depending on the doctor and insurance company. You might receive a bill from the doctor sent directly to your home. Whether or not you should first pay the bill to your doctor directly or wait for it to be dealt with by your health insurance company must be clarified in advance with your health insurance company.
The doctor may also send the bill straight to your health insurance company. In this case, your insurance company will contact you if, in accordance with the deductible amount in your contract, you have to pay part of the cost yourself.
