Another research project presents its results

The project analysed the effects of flat-rate reimbursement in the out-patient sector.

With the completion of this project, the results of 16 research projects are now available.

The projects funded by NRP 74 started at two points in time (2017 and 2019) and last between two and five years. They finish at different times.

Project 12: Flat-rate reimbursement in the out-patient sector

Flat-rate reimbursement helps avoid overtreatment and reduce healthcare costs

Fee-for services reimbursement incentivizes physicians to diagnose and treat more – and more expensively – than necessary. The study investigated how changes in the way doctors are reimbursed affect the supply of medical services in the out-patient setting and health care costs.
