Applying for health assistance during pregnancy and maternity


As a recipient of social assistance or basic income support, you will be supported by the social welfare office during pregnancy and maternity if you do not have health insurance. You will receive the normal health insurance benefits:

  • Medical treatment and care,
  • Support from midwives,
  • medication, bandages and remedies.

If necessary, you will receive care in inpatient facilities. If you need care at home and your family cannot provide it, the costs of home care will also be covered on a pro rata basis. However, this depends on the care level.

Healthcare assistance is provided to people who do not have statutory or adequate private health insurance, for whom the provision of benefits via the health insurance fund (Section 264 (4) SGB V) is not an option and who cannot reasonably be expected to raise the funds for the necessary assistance from their income and assets.

  • Application for health assistance
  • Identity card or passport (or other documents that can identify the person beyond doubt)

The competent social welfare institution will provide information on the documents required in individual cases.

With the exception of the usual deductibles, there are no costs.

No deadlines need to be observed.
