Apply for medical and dental treatment in the event of accidents at work and on the way to and from work

Description

Accidents at work, commuting accidents and occupational diseases can damage your health and teeth. Then medical and dental treatment including the provision of dental prostheses come into consideration.
In these cases, your employers' liability insurance association or accident insurance fund will cover the costs of medical treatment.
This also applies if special accident medical treatment is required. The free choice of your doctor may be restricted in such cases.

In the statutory accident insurance, the principle of official investigation applies. This means that your employers' liability insurance association or accident insurance fund will carry out all necessary investigations on its own initiative ("ex officio") as soon as it learns of your insured event.

  • Depending on the damage to health, consult a suitable doctor. The same applies to dental treatment.
  • In principle, there is a free choice of medical staff. In the event of accidents at work, it is advisable to visit a doctor who is involved in the transit medical procedure of the statutory accident insurance. Alternatively, your employers' liability insurance association or accident insurance fund can help you find a suitable doctor.
  • Inform your doctor that an accident at work, a commuting accident or an occupational disease is the reason for your visit.
  • The transit doctor or your professional association or accident insurance fund decides,
    • whether you need general medical treatment or
    • whether you need special treatment because of the nature and severity of the injury.
  • You can find out which employers' liability insurance association or accident insurance fund is responsible for you on the website of the German Social Accident Insurance (DGUV).
