Health cures and convalescence

Unless your pension or accident insurance provider covers these costs, your health insurance provider may agree to meet the costs of any health cure or stay in a convalescence home you require on a voluntary basis.

Your insurance provider will only agree to meet the costs of health and convalescence cures if your doctor first submits an appropriate application on your behalf and is able to provide adequate justification for your need for a cure.

If your cure is approved, you will be required to make a daily contribution towards costs that will be calculated on the basis of your financial situation, unless you are exempted under the regulations because you are registered as socially vulnerable.
