Sick leave by phone extended

Patients with colds can continue to take sick leave by phone. This possibility is valid until 31 March 2023 because of Corona and the flu season. This was decided by the joint committee of doctors, health insurance companies and clinics. However, doctors must personally convince themselves of the patient’s illness in a thorough interview. Sick leave on the phone for minor upper respiratory illnesses is possible for up to seven days. It can be extended once by seven days. This regulation is intended to reduce full waiting rooms and thus the risk of infection in doctors’ surgeries.
