First DiGA for cancer patients
As a DiGA, Mika can be prescribed by physicians and therapists. Statutory health insurances cover the costs for Mika.
- After patients receive a prescription for Mika, they submit it to their health insurance company.
- The health insurer then generates an individual activation code that is provided to the patient.
- After entering the code in Mika, the app is fully activated for 90 days.
- Fosanis is reimbursed from the respective health insurance company.
DIGA WITHOUT PRESCRIPTION:
Alternatively, cancer patients can directly contact their health insurance and ask for an activation code without a prescription.
