Aid for health (social assistance) Unfortunately this specification of service has not yet been completely translated.

By law on the modernization of statutory health insurance (GKV-Modernization Act - GMG), all non-health-insured social assistance recipients are in principle entitled to benefit insurance from the statutory health insurance with effect from 01.01.2004 and are now treated as 'cash patients'. All beneficiaries of social assistance are now used for co-payments under the burden limits. The other non-health insurance (short-term) recipients of social assistance can continue to receive health assistance.
