Apply for a cure for mothers or fathers

Description

A mother/father-child measure is inpatient medical treatment for mothers and fathers who are at risk of health or health due to their family situation. The measure can also be used by mothers or fathers alone.

The action shall be carried out in a facility of the Maternal Recovery Centre or a similar facility. You will also live there during the treatment, which is geared to the needs of mothers and fathers due to their individual stress situation.

The institution is selected by its health insurance company, which has to take your wishes into account as far as possible.

The mother/father-child measures usually last three weeks, for children under the age of 14 four to six weeks. They can be repeated at the earliest after four years. In the event of justified medical necessity, an extension or a new benefit may be requested.

Under certain conditions, mothers and fathers are entitled to a mother/father-child measure in relation to their health insurance fund.

Insured persons who have reached the age of eighteen and are taking a mother/father-child measure pay EUR 10.00 per calendar day to the institution which forwards the payments to the health insurance fund.

If you have little or no income, you can be exempted from the co-payment upon request. Please contact your health insurance company for this purpose.

Mother/father-child measures can be repeated after four years at the earliest, unless this is medically necessary.

The health insurance fund must decide quickly on an application for benefits:

  • no later than three weeks after receipt of the application, or
  • if an expert opinion, in particular from the Medical Service, is sought within five weeks of receipt of the application

If the health insurance company refuses the benefit, you can object to it. If the opposition is not remedied, you can appeal to the social court.
