How are the costs going to be covered?

If an HIV test is prescribed by a doctor to clarify a medically justified suspicion, the costs will be covered by the social security institutions. Every risk contact is a sufficient medical justification.
Treatment of HIV / AIDS and opportunistic infections is possible at the following facilities:
- Hospital (ideally with an HIV treatment center)
- Specialized resident doctor
How are the costs going to be covered?
The costs of the treatment of HIV / AIDS are covered by the social insurance institutions, for certain services (e.g. inpatient stays, medical aids and medical aids) - depending on the health insurance company - patient contributions are provided. For more information on the respective provisions, please contact your social security agency, which you can find on the social security website, for example.
People with HIV infection are currently exempt from the prescription fee.
When hospitalization is required
In the event of a hospital stay, the hospital costs are settled directly with the health or accident insurance. The patient has to pay a daily contribution to the costs. Further medication treatment at home takes place by prescription from the general practitioner or specialist.
