Deutsche Gesellschaft für Sozialmedizin und Prävention DGSMP. Wissenschaftliche Jahrestagung. Augsburg (DEU), 1993/09/08.
In 1992 the German Statutory Health Insurance body was in the red by about 9,000 million DM and had the highest membership fees ever since it was created.
Costing analysis revealed the following reasons for this enormous deficit: - too expensive hospital financing - a continually growing number of doctors and dental surgeons - unrational drug prescription and supply.
Of course, medical progress and demographic development are very significant costing factors.
When assessing the impact of the Structural Reform Legislation we must differentiate between purely cost-reducing measures and structural changes.
Cutting down the budgets in essential areas of compensation payment and slashing doctor'sfees are like putting your foot down on the brake pedal.
