Benefits for medical rehabilitation according to SGB IX Authorisation to avoid the need for long-term care and restrictions on earning capacity

In the event of an insured event, you will receive medical benefits, among other things, if you cannot maintain your earning capacity in any other way or if there is no other way to avoid the need for long-term care.
After the occurrence of an insured event, the accident insurance institutions have the task of restoring the ability to pay by all appropriate means.

Treatment can be provided on an outpatient or inpatient basis.

You will receive all the services that are necessary for the care. These include, for example:

- Medical treatment


- Supply of medicines, bandages, remedies and aids

- Treatment in hospitals and rehabilitation facilities

Damage to health that requires special trauma medical treatment is treated in special facilities.

All these services are targeted and coordinated with the treating physicians, physiotherapists and you within the framework of rehabilitation management and are accompanied by the rehabilitation manager of the responsible accident insurance institution.

Process flow

An insured event that results in an inability to work for more than three calendar days must be reported by the company to the responsible employers' liability insurance association or accident insurance fund.


The goal of treatment (maintaining earning capacity or avoiding the need for long-term care) cannot be achieved without medical rehabilitation.
