Step 1: Talk to your doctor
Your doctor knows your state of health best and can assess whether you meet the medical requirements for a preventive or rehabilitation measure. Depending on your state of health, he can also advise you whether an inpatient or outpatient stay would be more appropriate.
By the way: every person with statutory health insurance is entitled to a cure if it is medically necessary. An outpatient cure can be applied for every three years, an inpatient cure every four years.
Step 2: Fill in the spa application form
You fill this out together with your doctor, who will explain the medical requirements of the preventive care or rehabilitation measure as comprehensively as possible. Please send the completed application form to the cost bearer responsible for you.
And don’t forget: you can already enter BAD SULZA as your preferred spa resort in your application.
Step 3: Examination of your application
Your application for a cure will now be examined by the medical service, a contract doctor or an official doctor. Ideally, you will then receive your approval from the responsible cost unit.
Important: If your application is rejected, please submit an objection. It is advisable to formulate this together with your doctor and give detailed reasons. An objection is often successful. Your health will thank you for it.
…and then it starts – once you have been accepted, you have four months to start your cure. See you at the saltwater spa Bad Sulza!
By the way: since July 2021, the “open spa cure”, i.e. the outpatient preventive measure according to §23 para. 2, SGB V, is again a compulsory benefit of the health insurance fund. Talk to your family doctor about Form 25 today.
