An analysis was performed covering a period of 5 years (1986-1990) in respect of all health-promoting and preventive measures carried out by a local so-called « Allgemeine Ortskrankenkasse (=AOK) » looking after 170 000 insured persons, to find out the impact of the new legislation on the practice of that particular local insurance body.
During the period under report no changes in activities were recorded that would be worth mentioning.
Although expenditure for prevention rose by 50%, it was nevertheless impossible to administer preventive measures to all the insured persons throughout the area since the total amount reserved for this purpose was only 0.42% of the overall expenditure.
