27 March 2020 – Granted easy reimbursement of losses for nursing care services and institutions

Intervention Categories: Finance policy and financial aid; Financial aid to health services
Level of Jurisdiction: National

Overview: The Covid 19 Hospital Relief Act passed by the German Parliament contains regulations to ensure nursing care and to reduce the risk of infection for those in need of nursing care and all employees working in nursing care.

The additional financial expenditure or reduced revenues caused by the pandemic are to be reimbursed via the nursing care insurance system. Bureaucratic requirements and assessment obligations will be temporarily suspended.

Nursing care insurance funds will be given further leeway to avoid gaps in the provision of nursing care at home.
