Applying for remedies for persons with statutory accident insurance

Description

In the event of an insured event, you will receive remedies if necessary. Remedies are all medically prescribed services that serve a healing purpose and are provided by therapists. For example:

  • physiotherapy
  • Podiatric therapy
  • Voice, speech and language therapy
  • occupational therapy

In principle, additional payments are not to be made in the statutory accident insurance. However, fixed amounts apply. If something more expensive is prescribed or ordered, you must be informed by the doctor that the additional costs will be incurred.

If the aim of the medical treatment cannot be achieved with a "fixed amount" (medical justification required), the responsible accident insurance institution will cover the actual costs.

Accident insurance institutions are:

  • Trade associations, broken down by sector
  • Accident insurance institutions of the public sector (municipal accident insurance associations, state accident insurance funds, fire brigade accident insurance funds)
  • Agricultural employers' liability insurance associations

In the event of accidents at work or an occupational disease, accident insurance covers the costs of therapeutic products instead of health insurance.

  • An accident at work that leads to an incapacity for work of more than three calendar days must be reported by the company to the responsible employers' liability insurance association or accident insurance fund.
  • The prescription is made by a transit doctor These are particularly qualified for the treatment of accident injuries.
  • Prescription of therapy by a transit doctor

There are generally no fees.

In exceptional cases, you will inyetry additional costs. For further information, please contact your competent accident insurance institution.
