THE AID DIRECTORY OF THE STATUTORY HEALTH INSURANCE COMPANIES
The list of aids of the statutory health insurance (GKV aid index) contains all products that are recognised by the statutory health insurance as an aid. In addition, all products of the Nursing Aid List are included.
REHADAT adopts the updates of the Aids and Nursing Aid Index published by the central associations of the health insurances in the Federal Gazette.
THE PRODUCT NUMBER (RESOURCE NUMBER / ITEM NUMBER)
The Utilities Directory display has the following features and information for you:
The order criterion of the aid directory is the 4-part position number (aid number) assigned to each individual product, which is composed as follows:
Example: The walker type 26-22 from Ortopedia GmbH has the product number 10.46.02.1003
10 = product group: walking aids
46 = Application: Interior
02 = product subgroup: walker
1 … = Product type: Walker with armrest
1003 = single product: type 26-22
By selecting an aid number, you will be taken directly to the database “Drug Pricing Tool Germany“, which will provide you with the information from this area.
