Interpreter Services

All interpreters are highly-qualified specialists whose interpreting skills are tested beforehand. All interpreters are free-lance staff and are paid on an hourly fee basis.

IMS provides you with a list of experienced interpreters and helps you book the one you choose. In accordance with hospital rules and doctors` wishes, an interpreter must be present during treatment and diagnostic procedures.

Interpreters’ fees are paid from the patient’s deposit based on a timesheet, which documents the hours worked by the interpreter. Before a final fee is charged, the timesheet must be confirmed and signed by the patient.

Please note that waiting time for the appointment is included in the interpreters’ timesheet. In addition, interpreters have the right to include time spent making telephone calls on your behalf.

Interpreters are responsible neither for arranging appointments nor providing information on treatment costs. Please direct all such questions to your patient manager.
