Additional Charges to Consider besides Rigvir Cancer Treatment Cost

Other than the mentioned above package price, there are two more items of cost to consider.

First, most patients arriving from the U.S., Canada, and the UK are usually accompanied by a family member or a friend. In such cases, additional charges are applied to the companion - EUR 100 (around USD 116.00, GBP 90.00, AUD 147.00, or CAD 146.00) if he/she stays with you in the same room and EUR 200 (around USD 233.00, GBP 178.00, AUD 294.00, or CAD 291.00) if he/she chooses a separate room. In both cases, meals are included.

Second, while you receive three Rigvir® vials during the 7-day virotherapy treatment course, Rigvir® vials recommended during the three-month follow-up care are charged separately. The number of vials depends on your particular health needs, however, they cannot exceed 11. And that's when Rigvir price come into play.
