Apply for medicines and dressings for persons with health insurance


Insured persons in the statutory health insurance are entitled to the supply of pharmacy-only medicines and to the supply with bandages. The costs are covered by the health insurance companies.

  • Medicines for use in colds and flu-like infections
  • oral and pharyngeal therapeutics (except for fungal infections),
  • Laxative
  • Medicines for motion sickness.

The costs for funds that you can buy without prescription are generally not covered. Exception:

  • Medicinal products that are standard therapy for serious illnesses and are prescribed by the doctor.

The choice of prescribed remedies may be limited by discount agreements between health insurance companies and manufacturers. However, these funds are then also free of co-payment.

Fixed amounts may also apply to medicines and bandages. Any additional costs must be borne by you.

Contact your health insurance company.
