I've just come from from outpatient treatment from the university hospital. Registration (which covers the consultation) is 1.2Y per visit. The cortisone derivative injection + lidocaine cost 12Y. They also wanted me to have physio on my shoulder, but I am too busy to rock up for the next 5 days for this. The FAO paid and also paid for some biscuits to eat, as I hadn't eaten breakfast (I RARELY do) and the Dr wouldn't give me the injection until I had eaten!! Didn't matter how hard I tried to convince them that I hadn't eaten any of the previous times I had been either.
Registration at the 4th Military hospital was 10Y last time I took anyone there.
A couple of years back, I took another teacher to a clinic that had a foreign Dr working there. While I was chatting to the Dr we covered some personal stuff and she ended up aspirating a cyst for me. Cost 0Y
- her comment - next time you come we can charge 2Y!!! Although I will admit that the X-ray dep't opened onto the street, and the rooms were full of family and friends 'helping' the 4 Drs working in consulting room. She did take me into her office for the aspiration, draw the half curtain and went hunting for bandaids afterwards to put on the wound!!
You can have medical treatment as cheaply or as expensively as you want here!!!
My current contract specifies total medical insurance (apart from stuff like cosmetic surgery).
