Integrated care

CSS Insurance sees the introduction of a uniform system of financing for outpatient and inpatient services (EFAS) as a further way in which to promote integrated care, along with the relaxation of the obligation to contract proposed by the group of experts appointed by the Federal Council to recommend measures for reining in the rising costs under mandatory healthcare insurance. Such a system would allow additional discounts to be offered for integrated care models, thus making them more attractive. By increasing service providers’ motivation to take part in integrated care models, the relaxation of the obligation to contract, on the other hand, would allow the growing demand for models of this kind to be met by appropriate services.
