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 four insurance types to choose from: CASAMED SELECT - optimum treatment from Medgate or partner pharmacies, 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, a partner pharmacy of ÖKK, 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 four cases, you will be transferred to a specialist if it is medically necessary.
