Basic insurance model with Medgate or partner pharmacies


Your first point of contact for all health-related questions is the Medgate telemedical centre or a partner pharmacy of ÖKK. 


Contact Medgate’s specialist doctors and receive advice over the phone or via video. If further treatment is required, you will be immediately referred to a doctor or a specialist (ÖKK’s list of general practitioners or Medgate list of specialist doctors). The team of doctors, which also includes paediatricians, can be reached around the clock, seven days a week.

Artificial intelligence in the Medgate app 

Simply enter your symptoms into the Medgate app and find out whether you require telemedical treatment from a Medgate doctor or treatment from your GP. If a teleconsultation is recommended, you can arrange an appointment for a medical consultation directly in the Medgate app. If you are recommended to visit your GP, you can enter this in your treatment plan and then contact him/her directly. You can find out more from Medgate. 

Partner pharmacies

In your partner pharmacy, the pharmacist provides an initial consultation and then determines the next steps for your treatment.
In order to be referred to a doctor, therapist or hospital, you must always have an initial consultation from Medgate or the partner pharmacy. Exceptions include emergencies as well as gynaecological, paediatric and optometric treatments.
