Apply for reimbursement of costs for remedies under statutory accident insurance


Your employer's liability insurance association or accident insurance fund will cover the costs of medical treatment following an accident at work, commuting accident or a recognized occupational disease.

Remedies are all medically prescribed services that serve a healing purpose or ensure a healing outcome. These may only be provided by appropriately trained persons.

This includes, for example

  • Massages,
  • physiotherapy,
  • other physical therapies,
  • speech and occupational therapy.

Unlike with statutory health insurance, you do not have to pay a co-payment for this.

Process flow

Always obtain a doctor's prescription before you make use of therapeutic products.

If you have made a co-payment, you can submit the co-payment receipt online or by post.
