If thyroid surgery or radioiodine therapy of the thyroid gland is planned, you should be on the safe side and consult another independent thyroid specialist.

Right to second opinion

§27b SGB V: Patients have the right to second opinion. In September 2016, the Bundestag passed a corresponding social law.

Cost Coverage

Since there is a statutory right and therefore a right to a second opinion from a doctor, the statutory health insurance funds must cover the costs.

Medical independence

Decisive for a good second opinion is the medical independence from possible economic interests in the performance of the intervention.
