Health: Corona vaccinations are not yet available everywhere directly at health insurance companies

After the end of the crisis rules that have been in force for a long time, corona vaccinations are not yet available in all federal states directly at health insurance costs. The necessary agreements on remuneration have so far been reached in Baden-Württemberg, Bavaria, Hamburg, Lower Saxony, Schleswig-Holstein, Thuringia, the Westphalia-Lippe region and in Saarland, as the National Association of Statutory Health Insurance Physicians (KBV) announced at the request of the German Press Agency . Where the remuneration has not yet been regulated, patients will initially receive a private invoice and can then submit it to the statutory health insurance fund for reimbursement.

At Easter, the organization of the corona vaccinations switched from the previous crisis mode to regular care in the practices. According to the information, the remuneration for this is regulated at the state level between the associations of statutory health insurance physicians and health insurance companies.

The framework for entitlement to free vaccinations is now a guideline based on the recommendations of the Standing Vaccination Commission (Stiko). According to a federal ordinance, vaccinations are still possible at health insurance costs if a doctor deems it medically necessary. Vaccination, which was once in high demand, has been sluggish for a long time.
