A first-line in-patient stay in this context is a short-term stay required on medical grounds in connection with medical care such as general practitioners provide.
First-line in-patient stays are aimed at recovery and return to the home situation in the short term or relate to palliative terminal care.
The care does not include:
- stays in connection with the temporary takeover of care to release a family caregiver (respite care);
- stays you require in connection with a psychiatric disorder or impairment if you are younger than 18;
- stays for insured parties with a care assessment under the Long-Term Care Act (Wlz).
Referral required for first-line in-patient stay
You require a referral from a General Practitioner or a medical specialist for a first-line in-patient stay.

You are entitled to reimbursement of first-line-in-patient stay when a short-term stay is required on medical grounds. This is to include round-the-clock availability and provision of nursing and/or care, whether or not in conjunction with paramedical care connected to the grounds for the stay.
