Obstetric care

Obstetric care consists of accompaniment during the birth and prenatal and postnatal care by an obstetrician, general practitioner or medical specialist.

Obstetric care and birth care in hospital are fully reimbursed. The reimbursement of hospital admittance has a maximum of 3 days unless a longer period is medically necessary. Gynecological care is reimbursed upon medical indication.

The reimbursement of obstetric care includes the use of the delivery room, medical and nursing items and laboratory expenses. In the event of a home birth, the expenses of the obstetrician are reimbursed.

The expense of staying in a hotel before or after the actual birth shall not be reimbursed unless prior permission from the ZVK has been requested.
