Homeopathy is said to be a cash benefit in Switzerland
Homeopathy and other complementary medicine methods are to become the standard benefit of Swiss health insurance, this has now been decided by the Federal Department of Home Affairs (EDI). Since 2012, compulsory health insurance has paid for medical services in anthroposophic medicine, traditional Chinese medicine, homeopathy and phytotherapy - but only on the basis of a limited regulation.

This came about because the majority of the Swiss population had voted in a referendum to improve complementary medicine. From May 2017, medical homeopathy and other therapy methods will be treated as all other medical procedures in health insurance.

In Germany, around two thirds of health insurance companies reimburse medical homeopathy
In Germany, homeopathy, anthroposophic medicine and phytotherapy are equated with conventional medicine in Social Security Code V. However, medical benefits from these methods are not reimbursed as a standard benefit from statutory health insurance (GKV). However, around two thirds of the health insurance companies reimburse medical homeopathy under selective contracts. The prerequisite is that the treatment is carried out by a contract doctor who holds the homeopathy diploma from the German Central Association of Homeopathic Doctors (DZVhÄ).

Patients are very happy with homeopathic practice
According to Allensbach (2014), 60 percent of the German population has already used homeopathy for themselves. But how satisfied are patients with the effectiveness of homeopathy? The Health Monitor 2014, a representative study by the Bertelsmann Stiftung, shows that in more than 80 percent of patients who were treated by homeopathic doctors, the general condition and mental state improved. The physical complaints decreased most clearly with 85 percent. 43 percent of the homeopathy patients surveyed stated that they had consulted the homeopathic doctor about a chronic illness. As the most common motive, they named "that no improvement had been achieved elsewhere".

Cornelia Bajic, Chair of the German Central Association of Homeopathic Doctors DZVhÄ, evaluates the results "as an effective answer to the medical challenges caused by more and more chronically ill and multimorbid people".
