Osteopathy

A gentle treatment method using the hands. Benefit from SBK’s contribution towards your costs

Osteopathy is increasingly becoming established in the medical world as a recognised complement to conventional medicine. Through the power of the hands alone, blockages in the body are broken down and the balance between the various systems in the body is restored. ‘Manipulative’ diagnostics and therapy pay a key role here. This holistic treatment method thus forgoes pharmaceuticals and technical examination equipment. Back pain, digestive problems and jaw pain are just a few of the many possible indications for osteopathic treatment.

Osteopathy for children

Your child’s health and well-being is very important to us. That’s why as SBK customers, you and your entire family can be partially reimbursed for osteopathy as a complement to conventional medical treatments. Children generally respond very quickly and positively to osteopathic treatment. Even as infants, children suffering from growth problems, developmental delays or digestive issues can receive osteopathic treatment as a complement to conventional medical care.

Osteopathy – your SBK benefits

  • You get reimbursed 30 euros per session for up to six treatments in one calendar year with an osteopath recognised by us. So each year in total you can be reimbursed up to a maximum of 180 euros.

How to get osteopathic treatment

If your osteopath is a doctor or alternative practitioner, you can visit them directly without needing a certificate. If your osteopathic therapist is not a doctor or alternative practitioner, we will need a doctor’s certificate (no prescribed form needed) or private prescription indicating that osteopathic treatment is necessary, in order for us to reimburse some of your costs. Some doctors charge a fee for issuing a private prescription. Unfortunately we cannot reimburse you the costs of this. 

After receiving osteopathic treatment, your osteopath will send you a private invoice. You first pay the invoice yourself and then submit this invoice – along with the doctor’s certificate, if necessary – to SBK for reimbursement. In order for your request to be processed quickly, please send the documents to: SBK, 80227 Munich, Germany. 

We will then check the osteopath’s qualifications as a first step. The therapist must verify with us that they have a certain qualification and are a member of a professional osteopathic association recognised by us or are at least eligible for such membership. If they meet these quality standards, your reimbursement will be transferred to your bank account in a few days.
