Care levels & care rates

When people require nursing care they have a right to claim financial support from the nursing care insurance scheme. Those requiring care need different levels of assistance. The level of care required is graded into different care levels. The care level determines the scope of services that somebody requiring care will receive from the care insurance scheme. An application is made for an assessment of the care level by the care insurance scheme. The assessment and grading is carried out by the Medical Review Board of the Statutory Health Insurance Funds (MDK).
