However, as a patient with a prescription, your health insurance will cover these costs. You only pay the statutory co-payment of 10 euros. However, the health insurance company always pays only for medically necessary aids. If you opt for a more expensive wheelchair with greater comfort or additional functions, you can cover the additional costs yourself. For example, patients can add a traction device to their active wheelchair.

E-wheelchairs, like active wheelchairs, glasses or rollators, are aids in the sense of SGB V, §33, if they are "necessary in individual cases to ensurethe success of the medical treatment , toprevent an impending disability or to compensate fora disability".
