ÖKK offers a general practitioner model called CASAMED.
CASAMED is the cost-efficient HMO and general practitioner system that guarantees comprehensive and holistic medical care. ÖKK offers three insurance types to choose from: CASAMED HMO with medical treatment at the HMO centre, CASAMED GENERAL PRACTITIONER with medical treatment by a previously selected general practitioner and CASAMED 24 with medical consulting by telephone and possible transfer to a doctor in your area. Depending on the insurance type, the contact person is always the HMO centre, the chosen general practitioner or, by telephone, Callmed 24 (telephone consulting around the clock). Emergencies and regular check-ups at the gynaecologist’s and ophthalmologist’s as well as paediatrist’s are exempt from this requirement. In all three cases, you will be transferred to a specialist if it is medically necessary.
