Since the 1st of January 2015 only electronic health care cards are valid

The ‘old’ health care cards without photo are no longer valid. Since the 1st of January 2015 the patients insured according to law may only apply to a doctor, psychotherapist, or a dental doctor if they have a valid electronic health care card. Old cards are no longer valid.

Doctors are also not allowed by law to produce paid by the insurance company prescriptions, so only privately paid prescriptions will be issued.
