  • Access to Treatment and Surgery

    In-patient medical treatments and surgical procedures performed at IEO are scheduled after a specialist Medical Consultation with an Institute physician.

    All appointment procedures are carried out by the departmental secretaries according to the instructions provided by the IEO specialist in the treatment proposal sheet.


    IEO personnel will provide patients with a detailed guide on hospitalization and the surgical procedure (if applicable) at the time of scheduling and/or admission.


    If the patient decides to pay for the treatment, specialist of the Payment and Insurance Office prepares and delivers an estimate of costs. For patients who have medical insurance or participate in an industry/professional medical fund with an agreement with IEO, the Payment and Insurance Office staff will perform all the paperwork required by the agreement terms.

    Insurance-Sponsored Patients

    The European Institute of Oncology works with many health insurance companies throughout the world. If you have insurance, please check with your insurance company if they work with us or if you can ask for a direct reimbursement from them.



    European Health Insurance Card (S2)

    The S2 (formerly E112) route entitles you to state-funded treatment in another European Economic Area (EEA) country or Switzerland. Treatment will be provided under the same conditions of care and payment as for residents of that country. This could mean you have to pay a percentage of the costs personally. To be issued with an S2 form, you will need to make the request prior to treatment. Your country will decide whether or not to approve your application and will need to be satisfied that:

    • A physician prescribes you should be treated in the other EEA country, and that a full clinical assessment has been carried out to demonstrate that the treatment will meet your specific needs.
    • The costs of sending you abroad for treatment are justified. The health commissioner is responsible for spending money efficiently and fairly, in the interest of all the patients they look after.
    • The treatment is available under the other country’s state health scheme.
    • You are entitled to treatment under the National Health System.
