Other social security benefits in kind (D.6312)


Social transfers in kind, except reimbursements, made by social security funds to households. Most of other social security benefits in kind consist of medical or dental treatments, surgery, hospital accommodation, spectacles or contact lenses, medical appliances or equipment, and similar goods or services in the context of social risks or needs. The service is provided directly to the beneficiaries, without reimbursement, by market or non-market producers and should be valued accordingly. Any payments made by the householders themselves should be deducted. Other social security benefits in kind can be therefore subdivided into those for which the service is produced by market producers and purchased by general government units or NPISHs (D.63121), and those for which the service is produced by non-market producers (D.63122).
