Ah, Austria… snowy mountains and hills – happiness! Expatriation in these conditions is a dream. Of course, but then last weekend, your first-born fell on the ground. Sentence: one broken leg and one admission into hospital. Once the fear has passed, there is one question to be answered. What kind of support are you going to get? In Austria, you have two options : either ordinary admission or special admission (private hospital). If you choose the special-admission option, the relevant health expenses will be at your cost. Unless you have opted for an optimal health insurance cover guaranteeing the covering of full health expenses, whatever your choice of institution. Hence the need to make sure your contract is adapted to your lifestyle and covers all of your family fees.
