Is it true that statutory health insurance funds do not pay for skin cancer screening?

This medically important examination is at present partially assumed by statutory health insurance funds every 2 years for patients age 35 and over. In this respect you must only pay the additional costs for the required reflected-light microscopy which allows us to decide whether a mark is benign or malignant.

Younger patients (< 35 years) are currently not supported by health insurance funds, and so they must bear the examination costs on their own.
