Workplace health promotion for those with health insurance

Health insurance companies offer services for occupational health care.

Companies with an interest in workplace health promotion can contact a health insurance company and choose from a service portfolio for the support and introduction of occupational health care. Topics include:

  • Advice on health-promoting work design
  • Health-promoting work and lifestyle
  • Inter-company networking and consulting

Health insurance companies support companies in workplace health promotion by:

  • own specialists
  • as well as financial support.

Financial support requires an order from the health insurance company and always requires a prior examination by the health insurance company. The health insurance company ensures compliance with the quality criteria in accordance with the Guidelines for prevention of statutory health insurance (GKV).

The offers of workplace health promotion are available to all employees of the respective company.

It is advisable to contact the health insurance company, with which some of the employees are insured.
