Pneumatic compression therapy is applied as part of integral oedema therapy. Oedema therapy treatments are subject to a specific regulation. Every health insurance company has a fixed rate for these therapies.
In case of a chronic condition, the first 20 treatments are covered by the additional package; from the 21st treatment, the treatments are covered by the basic health insurance.
If there is no supplementary insurance, the first 20 treatments are at your own expense, after which a claim can be made under the basic insurance.
Should you have already made a claim on your supplementary package or have used up the maximum number of treatments, because you have had other therapies (physio, exercise) for example, the oedema therapy may also be at your own expense.We recommend that you contact your health insurance company as a matter of course.
