Apply for statutory health insurance benefits for people with disabilities in fully inpatient facilities and special forms of housing


If you live as a person with a disability (care level 2 to 5) in a fully inpatient facility where

  • participation in working life,
  • in education
  • social participation,
  • school education, or
  • the education of people with disabilities

are in the foreground?

Then the nursing care fund covers 15 percent of the costs.  

The expenses of the nursing care fund may not exceed 266 euros per calendar month in individual cases.

This also applies to special forms of housing (several people with disabilities together in a dormitory/residential group). In doing so,

  • the focus is on shared living and integration into society,
  • the Housing and Care Act apply,
  • the scope of care largely corresponds to the care in a fully inpatient facility.

If you claim a pro rata care allowance for the days on which you are cared for and cared for at home, the days of arrival and departure are considered full days of home care.

  • People in need of care are accommodated in a fully inpatient facility for people with disabilities


  • applies only to people in need of care with care levels 2 to 5


Ask your nursing care fund which documents are required and whether there is a special application form.

The application is free of charge.

The processing time of the application depends on different conditions.

Contact the nursing care fund.

The benefit must be applied for in writing to the nursing care fund
