Submit a notification of aids in the context of rehabilitation for persons with statutory accident insurance


Aids are all prescribed things that

  • ensure the success of the treatment or
  • mitigate or compensate for the consequences of damage to health, and
  • can help to achieve participation and rehabilitation goals.

In particular, the aids include:

  • Body prostheses, such as prostheses
  • orthopaedic aids, such as support devices, orthopaedic shoes, gloves and
  • other assistive devices such as hearing aids, glasses, dentures, wheelchairs and guide dogs

The statutory accident insurance also covers the costs of possible modifications, repairs and replacement of the aids.

The aids are considered to be benefits in kind. You can usually use them free of charge.

If a fixed amount has been set for aids, your employers' liability insurance association or accident insurance fund will regularly cover the costs to the extent of the statutory fixed amount.

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

Process flow

If you need an assistive device as a result of an accident at work or an occupational disease, ask for a medical prescription from

  • Your general practitioner or
  • Your treating specialist.

A doctor's prescription means a doctor's prescription or prescription. You redeem these with the provider of the aid.

For example, if you have made a co-payment for the aid, you can submit the proof of payment online or by post.
