Abstract

This article concerns the specific Federal German regulations governing payment of rehabilitation costs by the statutory insurance body within the framework of the legally prescribed pension fund insurance. Rehabilitation measures covered by this legislation should be taken as soon as initial health disorders are noticed that do not yet seriously hamper the personal and professional performance of the relevant individual. The number of persons to be treated for rehabilitation is determined inter alia by job factors that are injurious to health as well as by factors representing the individual's health disposition and body constitution. Such health-preserving measures are scheduled for a duration of 3 weeks. They have been conceived under group dynamic aspects and consists of a complex holistic health schema involving motion therapy and health education. The object of such preventive rehabilitation is to forestall any major disorders that may lead to premature loss of gainful employment ability, taking job stress into consideration and paying close attention to any signs of a possibly incumbent disabling disease.
