Explanation:
Sounds like the overall context is medical/health insurance; so a Selbstzahler would be a self-pay patient (per Schäfer). If the word "patient" does not work within your context, you should be able to paraphrase along the lines of self-pay plan or s.th. like that. Maybe the examples below will help, too.
