Service Description

Health assistance includes

  • Preventive health assistance (preventive services),
  • Assistance in the event of illness (medical treatment, alleviation of symptoms),
  • Assistance with family planning during pregnancy and maternity as well as assistance with sterilization.

The Act on the Modernization of Statutory Health Insurance (GKV-Modernisierungsgesetz - GMG) has basically put all social welfare recipients without health insurance on an equal footing with those with statutory health insurance in terms of benefits with effect from 1 January 2004. They are now treated as "statutory health insurance patients". All social welfare recipients are now required to make co-payments within the limits of the statutory limits.

The remaining (short-term) social welfare recipients who do not have health insurance can continue to receive health assistance.
