Apply for sociotherapy for the insured


Are you seriously mentally ill and unable to claim medical or medically prescribed services on your own? Then you are entitled to sociotherapy as a legally insured person.

Sociotherapy includes practical life-like instructions that enable you to take advantage of outpatient medical and psychotherapeutic services. The aim is to strengthen your own responsibility in such a way that you can do without sociotherapeutic care in the long term.

Sociotherapy can be prescribed if it prevents or shortens hospital treatment or if it is offered but not executable.

For each case of illness, you are entitled to 120 hours of sociotherapy within three years. The health insurance funds conclude contracts with suitable persons or institutions for the provision of sociotherapy.

Insured persons who are seriously mentally ill and are unable to access medical or medically prescribed services independently are entitled to sociotherapy.

Contact your health insurance.

  • You are insured by law
