Reimbursement of medical care in Luxembourg: what are the changes for 2018?
In 2018, those who are covered by the Luxembourgish Caisse Nationale de Santé (CNS) will see their medical care better reimbursed by their health insurance funds.
If the precise dates of changes in health care reimbursements are still unknown, we already know that, in 2018, speech therapy, psychomotricity, nursing and/or medical care will be 100% reimbursed instead of 88% for children.
There is also a change about lymph drainage care: prescription sessions are increased from 8 to 24, while support stockings can now be purchased by 2 pairs every 12 months instead of one pair every 6 months. As for joint protheses, they can be renewed every 12 years instead of 15.
Moreover, conventions and nomenclatures of other liberal professions such as dieticians, chiropodists, midwives and psychotherapists will be revised.
Similarly, osteopaths will now see their profession regulated and must now obtain a license from the Ministry of Health. The CNS will study later on if care will be reimbursed or not.
