  • Application forms for inpatient, full-day outpatient, outpatient rehabilitation treatment

    Please do not use any special low-cost offers from Deutsche Bahn as you will be unable to change your booking if your time of arrival or departure changes.
  • Post-hospital rehabilitation treatment (AHB)
    Post-hospital rehabilitation (AHB) is a continuation of treatment directly following a stay in hospital for an acute illness or operation. Please feel free to ask the social services at the hospital about the possibility of post-hospital rehabilitation at our clinic. Provided there are no reasons for objection on medical or other grounds, your request and right to choose (§ 9 SGB IX) should be granted. Generally, the costs are assumed by Deutsche Rentenversicherung Bund or your health insurance company. A stay generally lasts 3 weeks. In the case of medical necessity, the stay can be extended in consultation with your insurance company. The application for extension is filed by the attending physician. You can, of course, extend your stay at any time by paying privately.
    Full-day outpatient rehabilitation
    We offer full-day outpatient rehabilitation. The same therapies are available as for inpatients. The only difference is that you only stay at the clinic during the day. Our comfortable rest rooms for full-day outpatients ensure that you can relax between therapy sessions and meals. Generally, your insurance company will agree to pay for 15 days of therapy.
  • Admission
    The admission process is performed at the reception desk.
  • Date of admission
    Sometimes, the insurance company determines the date for commencing rehabilitation. Otherwise, the date for admission is agreed with our patient and guest services.
    If you are unable to honor the agreed date of admission, please contact our patient and guest services.
  • Banks / Savings banks
    Various bank branches can be found in the pedestrian zone / Louisenstrasse.
  • Accompanying person
    Your companion can be accommodated for a few days or for the entire duration of your rehabilitation. Our patient and guest services are happy to accept reservations.
  • Authorization
    Dr. Baumstark Clinic is licensed to operate a private hospital facility pursuant to § 30 / 155 Industrial Code and therefore complies with the regulations pertaining to financial assistance.
    Since you are insured privately, our contract for treatment must be concluded with you personally rather than with the insurance company. You will therefore receive a clinic agreement together with the invitation. You must apply for, and obtain confirmation of payment from your private insurance and financial assistance organization before commencing treatment. In the absence of confirmation of payment, patients are obligated to pay for all or some of the clinic services themselves throughout their entire stay. Please bear in mind that some private insurance schemes only cover some of the costs of rehabilitation and that you may therefore be required to pay some of the cost yourself.
    We charge the rate for private nursing care, which includes accommodation, meals, nursing care and the therapy treatment.
    Optional treatment by the chief physician is charged at the official rates (GOÄ) and billed separately.
  • Visitors
    Visitors are warmly welcomed at Dr. Baumstark Clinic.
    We would, however, ask for your consideration for other patients during the quiet periods.
  • Leave of absence
    Insurance companies do not permit leave of absence. Justified exceptions must be approved by the attending physicians.
  • Library
    Our in-house library will not only appeal to bookworms. The peaceful surroundings ensure literary enjoyment and will make you want to stay awhile.
  • Cafeteria

    Please let know during the admission process if you wish to be looked after by the leading physician.
    A dedicated carer and contact for private patients will happily deal with your needs and requests. We can also gladly provide you with conference or secretarial facilities, just as you require.
    Private patients must ensure that their private insurance company and, if applicable, allowances office have confirmed the payment of costs prior to starting rehabilitation. Please bear in mind that you are our contract partner. In the absence of any prior confirmation of payment, you will have to bear the costs yourself, including payment of a reasonable advance. If you are 100% privately insured (without allowances), we can bill the insurance company directly once we have received written confirmation of payment. If your insurance policy includes allowances, please submit our bill to your allowances office.
