From 1st July 2022 the electronical sick note is introduced to all surgeries in Germany. The sick patient obtains a paper attestation for himself and another one for his employer.
Simultaneously a further sick note is transfered digitally to his health insurance company. So the patient does not have to inform his health insurance company himself unless the electronical system is out of order for the time being. In this case a third paper attestation for the health insurance is handed out to the patient.
