Preventative testing for prostate cancer

Whether you get reimbursement for preventive testing for prostate cancer depends on the cover you have chosen:

  • Light and Regular cover: no reimbursement
  • Comfort cover: men aged 40 and above will receive reimbursement for a Prostate Specific Antigen test once every 2 years.

With the OOM Temporary Residence Abroad Insurance you can opt for no excess or an excess of €250, €500 or €1,000. If you have opted for an excess and you incur costs which are covered by the insurance, you then pay the first part of these costs yourself.
