Implants are materials placed in the body which remain there either permanently or for a certain period of time and support or even replace certain body functions.
Medically needed implants
Implants are used, for example, when the lens in your eye becomes cloudy and has to be replaced by an artificial lens, or when your heart has to be supported by a pacemaker. Such implants serve a medical purpose.
Purely aesthetic implants
If you decide to have an implant for purely aesthetic reasons, such as a breast implant, we are not permitted to cover the costs incurred.
