Medical aids and appliances

Medical technology for your daily needs

Your physical impairment can be eased. There are a number of medical aids to help you in your daily life. When you have reduced capacity, specialised equipment can help. Depending on your circumstances, your health insurance can contribute financially to the costs.

Medical devices

Wheelchairs, prostheses, hearing aids, walking aids or orthopaedic insoles may be covered by compulsory health insurance (AOS/OKP) or supplemental insurance (LCA/VVG) under certain conditions. However, please note that not all medical aids and appliances are necessarily covered by compulsory or supplemental health insurance. Please refer to the documents below. In all cases, a medical prescription is required.
