health insurance companies and parents' associations:
Starting from the 1999/2000 winter season, an agreement with the statutory health insurance companies in Bavaria will take effect. Thus, costs for CF climate therapies at the Dead Sea may be taken over.
The relevant laws call for additional payments, as is customary for rehabilitation treatment in Germany, too.
IIn case of hardship, please contact your CF Parents' Association, which will then send a written confirmation of the amount it is willing to assume to ip connections, since the Parents' As-sociation will be invoiced directly for the corresponding amount.
Please contact your health insurance company to apply for the climate therapy.Naturally, the entire ip connections team will be happy to help with any questions.
