Private Medical CareMedical care at home
Half of the private hospital revenue in Greece comes from one-off patient pay. Motherhood is a particularly large private sector as it is the domestic and international need for reproductive health, where more than 18% of medical internet-based queries are related to sterility and treatment Health care holidays also flourish within the EU, where clients (mainly from the UK) come to Eastern Europe for cheap dentistry.
Russians and Saudi Arabians, who are particularly affluent, go to private clinics in Switzerland or Germany. Since most Europeans have at their disposal either through their compulsory health care or through taxation, private health care services remain a relatively small business, accounting for 2-8% of the population.
Moreover, any industrial medicine reimbursed by the employer makes private health care superfluous. However, around 10% of Germans have private health insurances that allow them to enjoy a slightly higher degree of convenience during their stay in hospitals. The most remarkable trend in this area was the Netherlands, which in 2005 switched to a system where all individuals are obliged to take out private health insurances and not compulsory health-insurances.
Companies in many of Europe's nations with a public sector public sector public sector system are required to provide a certain amount of care to their people. Others, such as the UK and Sweden, have many employer willing to reimburse their workforces for OSH care so that keys can prevent delay in seeing a physician when they are ill.
Of course, the industrial medicine of a publically financed clinic will offer a similar level of care as the patient.
