Clinical Solutions agrees to immediately report to the clinic about the receipt of the advance payment in the bank account of Clinical Solutions GmbH. Up until the preparation of the final consolidated bill, no later than six weeks after the date of discharge of the patient, the amount of advance payment shall remain in the bank account of Clinical Solutions GmbH upon the request of the clinic.
If during the treatment, the cost of treatment exceeds the amount of the advance payment as a result of complications or due to a need for additional medical services, Clinical Solutions shall require from the patient to make an appropriate additional payment.
Upon completion of treatment, Clinical Solutions shall draw up the combined final bill on behalf of the clinic. If the amount of the final bill exceeds the amount of the advance payment, the patient agrees to transfer the remaining amount to the above bank account. If the amount of the final bill is below the amount of advance payment, the patient is paid back the difference.
Clinical Solutions shall not be responsible for the quality of health services provided by the clinic, especially medical services rendered during medical examinations, treatment and hospital care.
Submitting a claim and demands toward Clinical Solutions to restitute damages as a result of unsatisfactory delivery of services by the clinic, conducted by doctors during examination and treatment, as well as during in-patient hospital care, is RULED OUT.
The patient agrees to submit legal claims of this kind exclusively to the clinic only directly.
Clinical Solutions, to the extent that is necessary and required, will recommend to the patient the appropriate parties (e.g. lawyers) who provide necessary for the legal claims services.
Clinical Solutions shall not be responsible for legal claims of restitution of damages that arise on behalf of the clinic to the patient, regardless of the legal grounds upon which they arise. If the clinic or its doctors turn directly to the patient for the implementation of legal claims for damages restitution as a result of a hospital stay or if such claims will be brought directly against Clinical Solutions, the patient agrees to release Clinical Solutions from the claims of the clinic and - in the event of judicial involvement - to advance the costs arising in connection with this claim.
