Top cover and professional advice

The best medical care and expertise, nationwide
There are times when only the very best is good enough. This is why we offer you the best possible care by renowned doctors throughout the country with whom we have contractual arrangements. You benefit from the highest quality care and, depending on the contract, from an additional payment discount of up to 150 euros. If you have a special disease or are in need of an operation, we support you in getting a second opinion by arranging an appointment with a specialist or another top doctor via our waiting time management service.

100 percent reimbursement of the costs for travel vaccinations
Are certain vaccinations required for your travels abroad? We assume the full costs for these, so you have more money left over to enjoy your holiday.

Naturopathic and alternative medicine
You prefer a natural approach? You need look no further than Barmer! Take advantage of the exclusive conditions offered by our health insurance partner HUK-COBURG Krankenversicherung. With the outpatient supplemental cover, you‘re reimbursed up to 80 percent* of the costs for alternative medical treatments, naturopathic therapies and osteopathy.

Your life is digital, and so is Barmer

The Barmer App: manage all the important stuff online
Many of our services are available digitally in the Meine Barmer (My Barmer) members‘ section, which you can access via smartphone app or computer browser. For example, you can use it to review the medical services you‘ve received from doctors and hospitals or to upload your certificate of incapacity for work. The integrated health manager helps you to schedule and keep track of important check-up appointments.

Rest well with our sleeping aid
You can work better when you‘re well rested. Our Alexa Skill or GoogleHome Action Schlafenszeit (Bedtime) is the ideal way to relax.

Treat back pain at home – with an app
The Kaia Rücken-App (Kaia Back App) is based on the holistic approach to pain therapy and was developed in co-operation with the Zentrum für Interdisziplinäre Schmerztherapie (Centre for Interdisciplinary Pain Therapy) in Munich. With just a few clicks, the app creates a tailor-made training programme and you can get started immediately. Barmer policy holders can use the app free of charge for one year.

Ways for you to save your hard-earned money

Payout of up to 100 euros or other attractive bonuses each year
The Barmer Bonus App allows you and co-insured family members to collect bonus points by engaging in health-promoting activities, such as enrolling in an exercise class. You can then use these points directly in the app to purchase special rewards. The Barmer Bonus App also includes the Plus-Challenge run by our partner Majorel: it allows you to progress from level to level by means of tracking apps and wearables, and simultaneously helps us to further develop the bonus programme. By actively participating, you can become eligible for many discounted offers from a variety of bonus programme partners in the healthcare sector.

Elective tariff: up to 100 euros cashback annually
With our Pro Fit elective tariff, you can be reimbursed up to 100 euros each year if you make no or only a small
number of claims.

Lifelong learning: allowances for health-promoting courses
We contribute up to 150 euros annually towards health education courses on exercise and fitness, nutrition,
relaxation and addiction. You can choose between local classes and our free online courses, which you can participate in from the comfort of your own home or when on the move.
