Promoting integrated care is a key concern of CSS Insurance. Integrated care aims to create binding rules for the management of patients throughout their entire course of treatment, thus optimising the quality of treatment and achieving savings in service costs. The customer benefits from better quality and lower costs, which are achieved through efficient treatment. Implementing the fine-tuned system of risk adjustment will strengthen the incentives to promote integrated care models. Like the group of experts appointed by the Federal Council to recommend measures for reining in the rising costs under mandatory healthcare insurance, CSS Insurance sees a relaxation of the obligation to contract as a further way in which to promote integrated care. It would increase service providers’ motivation to take part in integrated care models and allow the growing demand to be met by appropriate services.
CSS's integrated care offering includes alternative forms of insurance and a variety of programmes and services.
