Applying for reimbursement of the costs of remedies in the statutory accident insurance


Your employers' liability insurance association or accident insurance fund will cover the costs of providing remedies after an accident at work, commuting accident or a recognised occupational disease.

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

These include, for example,

  • Massages
  • Physiotherapy
  • other physical therapies,
  • Speech and occupational therapy.

In contrast to statutory health insurance, you do not have to pay any of your own contribution.

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