This is how we help
Medinetz Leipzig advocates practically and politically for access to medical care for all people, regardless of health insurance or residency status. We are a non-governmental, anti-racist organization. Our support is free of charge and anonymous.
Medical treatment is provided through our sister organization CABL e.V. (Clearingstelle und Anonymer Behandlungsschein Leipzig). Anonymous treatment vouchers (Anonyme Behandlungsscheine) are issued in the CABL e.V. consultation hours, which clients can use to receive outpatient medical care. Language mediation can also be organized through CABL.
In the case of inpatient hospitalization or operations, Medinetz can provide financial support for clients. Clients can also turn to Medinetz for medical interventions that CABL e.V. is not able to take over. If necessary, Medinetz can help arrange medical appointments or accompany clients to appointments.
In case of an emergency, the emergency room must not turn you away! That would be non-assistance of a person in danger. Sometimes, however, hospitals unfortunately require a deposit or a written declaration for patients to bear all costs themselves.
In case of an emergency, Medinetz can advise on this by telephone. If necessary, a person of the Medinetz can come along to the emergency room as support in order to find a solution together.
Here you can find more information about the legal situation in emergencies and what you should consider.
We don’t offer medical treatment ourselves
The Medinetz is neither hospital nor health center. We help through consultation and mediation. Therefore, we cannot offer medical treatment ourselves.
The consultation hours of CABL e.V. are staffed by a social worker and a volunteer doctor. However, CABL does not provide medical treatment, but only an initial examination and the issuance of the Anonymous Treatment Certificate (Anonymer Behandlungsschein).
The office hours of our sister association CABL e.V. take place at Taubestraße 2, 04347 Leipzig, Germany. They kindly ask you to make an appointment by phone. Outside of office hours, CABL e.V. can be reached by phone during the week.
- Tuesday: 17:00-20:00
- Thursday: 09:00-12:00
The Medinetz itself can be reached by telephone at any time. The telephone service is permanently manned. If you do not reach anyone at the moment, it is best to leave a message on the answering machine and we will call you back as soon as possible.
