Applying for aids for persons with statutory accident insurance

Description

Aids are all prescribed things that

  • ensure the success of the curative treatment or
  • mitigate or compensate for the consequences of damage to health, and
  • can help achieve participation and rehabilitation goals.

The aids include in particular:

  • Body prostheses, for example prostheses
  • orthopaedic aids, e.g. support apparatus orthopaedic shoes, gloves and
  • other aids such as hearing aids, glasses, dentures, wheelchairs and guide dogs for the blind

The statutory accident insurance also covers the costs of possible modifications, repairs and replacement of the aids.

The aids shall be regarded as benefits in kind. You can usually use them free of charge.

If a fixed amount has been set for aids, your employers' liability insurance association or accident insurance fund regularly assumes the costs to the extent of the statutory fixed amount.

Unlike in statutory health insurance, you usually do not have to pay a co-payment.

If you need a medical aid as a result of an accident at work or an occupational disease, obtain a medical prescription from:

  • your transit doctor or
  • Your treating specialist.

A doctor's prescription means a doctor's prescription or prescription. You redeem these with the provider of the aid.

For example, if you have made a co-payment for the aid, you can submit the proof of payment online or by post.
