To get back on your feet after a health problem

Heal a chronic illness, get back on your feet after a stay in hospital or put a stop to your addiction to alcohol: these are some of the situations that may lead you to begin a cure. Such expenses are optimally covered by the relevant supplemental insurance plan.

Reimbursement of cure-related expenses

Cures are covered both by the basic LAMal/KVG health insurance and your supplemental insurance plans, depending on a number of criteria. You must send us a prescription from your doctor before starting the intended cure. We will then check whether the expenses are covered.
