Medical aids and equipment

Respiration therapy equipment, compression stockings and prostheses help you with medical conditions. We can assume these medical aids from basic insurance. With PRIMEO, you have the ability to insure costs that exceed the limit. Our TOP, COMPLETA and OMNIA supplementary insurance models give you contributions towards medical aids that make everyday life easier or make you more independent, such as a wheelchair, electric nursing bed or walker.
