Military insurance: Benefits in kind and reimbursement of expenses

The benefits in kind and reimbursement of expenses concern:

- treatment, including home care and therapies
- meeting the cost of aids
- reimbursement of travel and rescue costs

Treatment, home care and therapies

The insured person is entitled to appropriate and economical treatment aimed at improving their condition and capacity for work. Military insurance covers outpatient treatment by appropriate medical staff and inpatient treatment.
Regarding dental treatment, military insurance covers the cost of consequences of accidents and diseases that occurred during military service, but to the same degree as the HIA.
Additional compensation is paid to cover home care and therapies. The actual costs are covered. There are no financial limits.


For insured persons who are disabled, military insurance also provides appropriate and easy-to-use aids. The military insurance does not keep a list of aids, which means it is able to provide the latest models more quickly.

Reimbursement of travel and rescue costs

Military insurance reimburses travel, transport, search and rescue costs provided they are necessary. Besides this condition, there are no financial limits, even if the costs were incurred abroad.
