The AOK Saxony-Anhalt offers preventive health care in the form of health courses – you too can benefit from them!
Health courses are courses of different contents, which take place over a fixed period of time. With these offers you can promote your health actively, because with the various health courses something is present for everyone. Contents of a health course can be topics such as nutrition, exercise, stress management, relaxation or even dealing with addictive substances. With so-called combination courses two topic fields, as for example relaxation and movement are connected with one another. This is then counted as two individual courses. The prerequisite for the recognition of the health course is that it is certified by the ZPP (Zentralen Prufstelle fur Pravention).

What can I expect from a course?
The health courses take place under the professional guidance of a trainer. In order to be certified, the trainers must have a state-approved professional or academic degree. In addition, a corresponding additional qualification in the respective area in which they offer the course must be proven. Most courses run for 8 to 12 weeks. The provider specifies the exact course duration in the course database of the Central Prevention Testing Agency (ZPP). The courses can be taken both on site, but also as an online course.
Health courses online
You can participate in health courses in different forms. It's up to you whether you want to do an on-site course or a location-independent online course. Feel free to use our health courses online. We also subsidize your participation from home. So simply select the recognized health course, register and take part.
Framework of cost coverage
We will subsidize up to two health courses or one combination course per year. We cover 90 percent of the course costs, but a maximum of 80 euros per individual course. We will reimburse a maximum of 160 euros for a combination course. If you have taken a liking to health courses, you can of course continue them at your own expense.
You initially pay for the health course yourself. Afterwards you submit us the confirmation of participation with your current account details and receipt for the course costs. You can do this in person at the customer center, by mail, or quickly and easily in My Health World. After a successful check we will refund you the partial amount.
Health courses EXTRA
In order to offer you exclusive added value, we hold "Health Courses EXTRA" for you ready. These are health courses in which you can participate completely free of charge as an AOK-insured person. An example of this is the EXTRA "Active weight loss" health course. In 10 units of 90 minutes each, you will learn to reach your feel-good weight and become more mobile bit by bit. You will also receive behavioral counseling in the group and moderated discussions by our nutrition experts. In short lectures, brainstorming and individual work, the causes of overweight are uncovered and situation-dependent eating behavior is identified. In an integrated cooking lesson you will put into practice what you have learned.
We also offer two other health courses EXTRA. In the course Ruckenfit Generation + the best protection against back pain is aimed at. You learn how to mobilize your spine with selected stretching and strengthening exercises, but also how to stabilize it.
