Homeopathy can complement conventional medicine – and your SBK will cover the costs of treatment
A great deal of customer feedback has confirmed to us over the years that homeopathy produces positive results. Accordingly, increasing numbers of customers are asking for this alternative treatment method from their health insurers. Despite the lack of proof for its effectiveness and benefit (evidence), which we would usually require for covering costs, homoeopathy – as a special therapy approach – is not strictly excluded from reimbursement under the statutory health insurance scheme.
You, too, can engage your body’s own healing powers with our help. We cover all costs, from recording your medical history to advice and treatment by any participating practitioner. As an SBK customer, you can choose to have homeopathic treatments as a complement to other therapy or on its own. You only pay the cost of medications and special forms of treatment. Please note: our offer for homeopathy does not include treatments from alternative practitioners.
To provide you with comprehensive care, we have started a high-quality homeopathic programme countrywide. Over 1,200 trained medical professionals with additional qualifications as homeopaths take part in our programme. You can also receive advice from over 2,600 partner pharmacies, with detailed information about taking homeopathic preparations and potential interactions with other pharmaceuticals.
