Source: Zuständigkeitsfinder Schleswig-Holstein (Linie6PLus)

Service Description

Do you need medical aids such as a wheelchair or glasses as part of rehabilitation due to the consequences of an accident at work or an occupational illness? Then the statutory accident insurance will cover the costs.

Aids are all prescribed items that

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

Assistive products include in particular

  • Body replacements, for example prostheses
  • orthopaedic aids, for example support devices orthopaedic shoes, gloves and
  • other aids such as hearing aids, spectacles, dentures, wheelchairs and guide dogs for the blind

Statutory accident insurance also covers the costs of any modifications, repairs and replacements of aids.

The aids are considered benefits in kind. As a rule, you can 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.

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