From 1 January 2023, the following changes will be made to the fund’s rules:
- The reimbursement for spectacles will be completely renewed. In the future, individuals who have been members of the fund for at least one year will be reimbursed 75% of the cost of spectacles and contact lenses prescribed by a doctor or optician, fees charged by an optician, eye examination fees, vision correction surgery and spectacle leasing agreements. In the future, the maximum amount of compensation will be 550 euros per member per calendar year. Compensation according to the new rules applies to purchases made on January 1, 2023 or after.
- Cancer and artificial kidney treatments performed in the private sector will no longer be reimbursed.
In addition, the legislative change related to the Health Incurance Act is under consideration in the parliament during 2022. If they come into force, the changes will also affect to the rules of the fund. However, the compensation to be paid or the compensation line remain largely similar. We will inform about the changes on our website.
