Finding a medical specialist
If you’ve arrived in Luxembourg and you already know you will need support for a medical condition – from a skin problem to an artificial heart valve – you can contact a medical specialist directly without going through your GP.
If you suspect you have a condition or need psychological support, a gynaecological examination or treatment for a back problem, you can also make an appointment with a medical specialist without referral.
Specialists operate through hospitals and clinics or on their own premises, and the costs of treatment and medication can be reimbursed by 80 to 100% by the CNS (the national health fund). Check first though, as not all specialist support, such as visits to a psychologist, are reimbursed.
You can find out more about the CNS in our article here.
If you have a chronic illness or established condition, you should bring or transfer detailed medical records from your previous GP or specialist, as the one you find in Luxembourg will be responsible for your long-term care and any medication required.
You can find out more about transferring your medical records here.
