Q. What happens if I am a My Health member and I also have a doctor or specialist in another hospital in PV?
A. Hospiten does have a wide range of specialists. However, if there is a particular speciality we do not have, we are very open to those specialists coming to the hospital if you are admitted to us. Any visiting doctors do have to provide the credentials required by Hospiten regarding their professional education. You are of course at liberty to continue to see any other doctor you have a relationship with. This would not affect your My Health membership.
