Private health insurance / insurance for civil servants

Cost coverage through private health insurance (and "Beihilfe" for civil servants)

Cost coverage should be possible for practically all therapists listed on this website, because the only condition for coverage is that the therapist must be licensed/state-approved, which is the case for all therapists in this database. With very few exceptions, all private health insurance companies cover the costs of psychotherapy through licensed psychological psychotherapists. However, a deductible is built into almost all newer insurance policies.

If you desire to obtain services that are not directly related to an illess, e.g. advice concerning occupational problems, or if you desire to receive special forms of treatment such as couples therapy or body-oriented therapy, you will almost always be required to pay for these services yourself.
