Repetitive medical treatment (serial)

Transport for repetitive medical treatment (serial transport) refers to multiple transports of the insured person between their usual place of stay and the place where they obtain treatment covered by health insurance. It must be a:

  • chemotherapy, radiotherapy or dialysis treatment;
  • treatment with at least four sessions within a ninety (90) day interval:
    • in the national centre for functional re-education and rehabilitation or to a geriatric or cardiac rehabilitation service in a hospital or the national physical rehabilitation service or the national post-oncological rehabilitation service;
    • as part of outpatient treatment at the national juvenile psychiatric service;
    • as part of outpatient treatment of wounds using negative pressure;
    • as part of treatment in a hyperbaric oxygen therapy chamber;
    • in a hospital if special treatment is authorised by the Social Security Medical Board.
  • post-transplant follow-up in a hospital following an organ transplant.

Health insurance can cover serial transport by taxi (Luxembourg and abroad) or ambulance (Luxembourg and abroad) depending on the state of health of the insured. If the insured travels by other means of transport or is transported by car by a relative, a reimbursement of travel expenses may be requested.
