Medical aids


Medical aids will be prepared for you on prescription in adequate and appropriate form by our contractual partners (such as prosthetics technicians, opticians, orthopaedic shoe makers).

A proportion of the costs of medical aids must be paid by insured persons and/or their dependents. Your health insurance provider will only cover costs up to a predefined limit.

Insured persons registered as socially vulnerable and their dependents, as well as insured persons and their dependents who are under the age of 15, are exempted from the payment of a proportion of the costs.

Your insurance provider may also be able to provide certain medical aids to you (wheelchairs, oxygen apparatus etc.) on loan.

For more information on aspects such as approval conditions, medical requirements and patient contributions towards costs, please contact your health insurance provider.
