On the 1st August 2012, the revised hospital financial regulations came into effect, with the result being the award of EUR 300 million to hospitals. In determining this amount, it must be equivalent to one third of the total staff remuneration increases above basic salaries, with the remainder being covered through a tariff equalisation rate.
The now agreed €300 million corresponds to an increase in the payment of fees by 0.51 percent for the full year 2012. „This is an important step towards relieving the hospitals in the current year“, explained DKG CEO Georg Baum and the deputy chairman of the Vorstandsvorsitzende des GKV-Spitzenverbandes, Johann-Magnus von Stackelberg, in a joint press release.
