fully stable care for legally insured persons Unfortunately this specification of service has not yet been completely translated.

People in need of care who are not cared for at home take advantage of fully inpatient care in a nursing home.

Fully inpatient care means that those in need of care are cared for and cared for in a nursing home.

Ensuring medical care in nursing homes is no different from that for other insured persons living at home. For the residents of nursing homes, the free choice of doctor applies.

In the case of fully inpatient care, long-term care insurance pays flat-rate benefits for care-related expenses, including expenses for care and expenses for medical treatment care services in nursing homes.

The benefits for fully inpatient care amount to monthly

  • for care level 1: 125 Euro subsidy,
  • at care level 2: 770 Euro
  • at care level 3: 1,262 euros,
  • at care level 4: 1,775 euros and
  • at care level 5: 2,005 euros

If the benefit of the long-term care insurance is not sufficient to cover the care-related expenses, the person in need of care must pay his own contribution.

In addition to the care-related own contribution, there are additional costs for fully inpatient care for those in need of care:

  • Costs for accommodation and meals.
  • if necessary, separately calculable investment costs These are expenses of the operator for purchases, building rent and the like, which can be passed on to those in need of care.
  • Costs for special comfort or additional services must also be paid privately.

Basically, the costs for food, accommodation, investments and comfort services vary greatly depending on the facility. It is therefore advisable to inform yourself in detail when choosing a home.

  • Inquire at the respective care fund to be asked which documents are required and whether there is a special application form.


  • Applies only to persons in need of care with care level 2 to 5.
  • Persons in need of care with care level 1 receive a subsidy of 125 euros per month if you choose fully inpatient care.
