Alternative Practitioner Insurance

Additional insurance for alternative practitioner services

In many statutory health insurance companies, the services provided by alternative practitioners are strictly regulated - and you have to cover a not insignificant portion yourself. It's different with Neodirect HEALTH plus NATURE: This private supplementary insurance is an excellent alternative for you.

The alternative practitioner insurance reimburses up to 80% of the medical treatment costs according to the fee and covers 80% of the costs for remedies, medicines, bandages and aids. In addition to the very high reimbursement costs for alternative healing methods, the tariff is also very interesting for people who wear glasses. Another highlight of HEALTH plus NATURE is the one-off reimbursement of up to EUR 1,000 for laser eye surgery.


In harmony with nature


The ALTERNATIVE PRACTITIONER SUPPLEMENTARY INSURANCE offers extended insurance coverage for alternative medical services such as naturopathy and acupuncture as private supplementary health insurance. These treatment methods, mainly provided by alternative practitioners, are usually not covered by statutory health insurance. Legal health insurers, therefore, reimburse such costs only to a limited extent or not at all.

Although some statutory health insurers have included naturopathic treatments in their tariffs, they often only cover a small part of the costs. In these cases, the insured must bear most of the treatment costs with the alternative practitioner. With private supplementary insurance, however, you can reduce costs and be financially secure.
