Applying for a combination of cash and non-cash benefits for those with statutory long-term care insurance


For home care, people in need of care are entitled to benefits in kind. This includes body-related care services, nursing care measures or help with housekeeping. This home care assistance is usually provided by outpatient care services.

If these benefits in kind are only partially used, those in need of care are entitled to a proportionate care allowance (§37 SGB XI)). The care allowance available is reduced by the percentage in which the person in need of care receives benefits in kind.

The decision on the ratio of cash and non-cash benefits is binding for 6 months.

During short-term care (for up to eight weeks) or preventive care (for up to six weeks), the care allowance is 50 percent of the amount paid before the start of short-term or preventive care.

If people in need of care from fully inpatient facilities are temporarily cared for at home, they are also entitled to care allowance for this period.


  • The combination care regulation must be applied for at the nursing care fund.
  • Submit the application in writing so that you can prove that you have applied for combination care.

Contact the nursing care fund.

  • Care benefits in kind are only partially used
  • applies only to people in need of care with care levels 2 to 5

Ask your nursing care fund which documents are required and whether there is a special application form.

The application is free of charge.
