Reimbursement of costs for treatment in hospitals and rehabilitation facilities for those with statutory accident insurance

The statutory accident insurance pays both hospital costs and the costs in rehabilitation facilities.
The hospital or rehabilitation facility will settle the costs of your treatment directly with your responsible employers' liability insurance association or accident insurance fund. This applies to outpatient as well as inpatient treatment.
Employers' liability insurance associations and accident insurance funds pay for your inpatient treatment if it is medically necessary. Your treatment may be full or partial inpatient. It includes all services that are necessary for medical care in your case. This may include, in particular:

  • Treatment
  • Nursing
  • Supply of medicines, bandages, remedies and aids as well as
  • Accommodation and meals.

They may suffer damage to their health, for which special accident medical inpatient treatment is necessary due to their nature or severity. In such cases, you will be treated in special facilities.
Unlike statutory health insurance, you do not have to pay your own contribution for your treatment.
