How does it work?

How does rehabilitation abroad work?

More and more patients are giving up on the waiting lists and going abroad for treatment. Medical interventions in a foreign hospital or rehabilitation centre are nowadays partially or fully reimbursed by the European health insurance companies. Rehabilitation centre MedifitReha has set up a ‘Medical Airlift’ to make medical treatment possible for foreign patients.

You will receive a rehabilitation programme of higher intensity (1 on 1) at the same rate as in your own country. In addition, we provide a more personalised service without charging extra costs. Your stay in our rehabilitation centre, the professional assistance and the handling of the administrative area will all be carefully arranged for you, in your own language. You do not have to worry about anything else but your health.
So, how does the rehabilitation work at MedifitReha centre? It is all explained step by step below.


If you have complaints and need rehabilitation, it is necessary that you first get a referral from a rehabilitation doctor. This referral must indicate which rehabilitation pathway is indicated for your diagnosis and whether it should be on an outpatient or inpatient basis. This referral can be written by a rehabilitation specialist in your area or by our own rehabilitation specialist.

Costs and benefits of rehabilitation in Spain

According to European regulations, all rehabilitation within the EU is reimbursed at the same rate as in your own country. Therefore, if you qualify for rehabilitation treatment there, it is also possible for you to receive your treatment in Spain.

Recovery programme in Spain

The first day of rehabilitation always begins with a consultation with our rehabilitation doctor, who will then discuss the treatment plan with you and the therapy team. You will then begin your rehabilitation, usually on the same day. During the treatment process, the rehabilitation doctor and an assigned therapist will have regular evaluations with you to continuously adapt the programme to your needs.

Michael arrived in Moraira in a wheelchair and left with only a cane as a (temporary) support when walking. Far better than we had ever hoped for! Far better than we had ever hoped for!

Really, what a fantastic rehabilitation center! Just got back 2.5 weeks after hip surgery. What a professional and lovely beautiful people! Highly recommended for anyone who gets "no" aftercare here, I recommend: go to Spain and Medifit ... health insurers reimburse this. Fantastic team!!

I was made to feel very comfortable by the lovely caring therapists. I also stayed in a nice apartment where I got some rest. These 6 weeks have made me a lot stronger and more confident.

I trained hard with the therapists for 8 weeks. As a result, I now have much more stamina. I also feel much better. The healthy air on the Costa Blanca has also helped.
