In Germany, the term cure in the Social Security Code has been largely replaced by the term medical rehabilitation since 2001 . The social law foundations of rehabilitation can mainly be found in SGB IX . With the exception of the follow-up and consolidation cures according to Paragraph 1, Clause 2 of SGB VI , the statutory social insurance has not covered any costs for cures since 2001.
On average, a cure for self-payers in Germany costs around 50 to 200 euros per day.
