Medical aids are products such as compression stockings, blood sugar monitors, walking aids or incontinence supplies. Find out here who covers the cost, and which providers we recommend.
Basic insurance covers the cost of an aid if all of the following three conditions are met:
The situation is different if you are given the aid by a medical professional (hospital, retirement home, carer, doctor, physiotherapist, ergotherapist, etc.). In this case, the cost is included in the treatment.
Hearing aids and orthopaedic shoes are covered under basic insurance only if certain conditions are met – for example, if you satisfy the medical requirements of Federal Disability Insurance (IV) or Old Age and Survivors' Insurance (OASI) but fail to meet the eligibility requirements for benefits under these social insurance schemes.
We work with several partners that offer high-quality products at attractive prices. It is best to let your doctor know that you are insured with us and would prefer to get your aids from one of the following providers:
