Is there a possibility to get a cash grant from the health insurance or the nursing care insurance?
A cash grant depends on the health insurance company and is in most cases a private service. The use of aids and the adaptation of the home to the individual possibilities and requirements support a self-determined life and allow people to stay in their own home. That's why under certain circumstances, costs concerning purchase and installation of such bathlifts are cash granted with up to 60% of the buying price by nursing care insurances. You do not necessarily have to be in a care level.
When does the nursing care insurance bear the costs?
Costs for auxiliary means must be applied for at the nursing aid insurance, when the health insurance is not obliged to pay. The directory of care support devices tells, which auxiliary means can be paid or rented.
Does the nursing care insurance bear the total costs?
Independent from the care level, the nursing care insurance pays up to 2.557 euros following an application for adaptation measures that allow and facilitate the care at home or try to re-establish an independent living of the person in need of care. The aim of such measures is to prevent an excessive demand of the nurse.
