Provision of medical treatment for war victims
As a disabled person, you are entitled to medical treatment for recognised health disorders. If you are severely disabled, benefits will also be granted for non-medical ailments if and to the extent that they are not otherwise ensured (e.g. through membership in statutory health insurance); under the same conditions, the family members and carers of the severely disabled and all surviving dependents may benefit from medical treatment .
The type and scope of the services generally correspond to those of statutory health insurance.
The treatment includes:
- outpatient medical and dental treatment,
- supply of medicines and dressings,
- Supply of remedies including physiotherapy, exercise therapy, speech therapy and occupational therapy, as well as spectacle lenses and contact lenses
- provision of dental prostheses,
- treatment in a hospital (hospital treatment),
- treatment in a rehabilitation facility,
- home health care,
- supply of aids,
- stress testing and occupational therapy,
- non-medical socio-paediatric services,
- Psychotherapy as medical and psychotherapeutic treatment and sociotherapy.
Medical and medical treatment services are generally provided upon request. The following benefits are provided directly by the responsible pension office and must be applied for there:
- Exercise therapy
- Speech therapy
- Occupational therapy
- Load testing
- Occupational therapy
- spa treatments,
- Physical exercises for the disabled,
- Lump sum for wear and tear of clothes and laundry
- All other services are provided by the health insurance fund for the pension administration.
- If an eligible person is not a member of a health insurance company, he or she can contact a statutory health insurance company of his or her choice.
- Health disorders that have been recognised as a consequence of an injury or have been caused by a recognised consequence of injury (causality)
Which documents are required?
- Application (possible informally)
- Notification of recognition as a damaged or severely disabled person
- Health insurance insurance card
- Certificate of consequences of injury by the pension authority
What are the fees?
If only the consequences of injury are treated, no co-payments and deductibles may be charged.
What deadlines do I have to pay attention to?
Services are only provided upon request.
As a rule, medical treatment is provided immediately. Certain services (e.g. orthopaedic care, dental prostheses) must be examined in an approval procedure and should therefore be applied for in good time.
