What happened to Papa Ziegler Papa died

Papa must never be without a baby

Vienna. In the first instance, the father was still right. After the decision of the Supreme Court (OGH) it is clear: The man does not get any money for his dad month.

The child was born on June 13th. From June 14th to July 14th, the man wanted to dedicate himself to Papamonat. The child and mother did not come out of the hospital until June 16. The health insurance company promptly refused to pay out the money. Because this is only possible when the family is united in the same house.

In court, the man finally only asked for money for the period from June 16 to July 14. So for the time when he, mother and child were at home. A dad month can be between 28 and 31 days. So that would work out.

But once you have applied for a period, the requirements for the Papamonat must be met on every single day, explained the Supreme Court (10 ObS 113 / 19v). There is no proportional money for dad month. The man comes away empty-handed. (aich)
