Mediclinic updates on Zurich VVG levy

10 April 2017 13:53

Mediclinic International has announced that the Zurich Cantonal Parliament voted not to approve the proposed VVG levy on the proportion of privately insured patients treated in listed hospitals, including Klinik Hirslanden.

The Company also confirmed that that the Swiss national outpatient tariff ("TARMED") was still in revision.

The Swiss Federal Government has released proposed adjustments as a transitional solution whilst healthcare providers and funders continue to negotiate and agree a revised TARMED tariff structure.

Commenting today, Ole Wiesinger, CEO of Hirslanden, said:

"We acknowledge that the Zurich Cantonal Parliament has followed the recommendation of the Finance Commission and voted not to approve the proposed Zurich VVG levy and recognise that ongoing dialogue and engagement with the relevant public authorities is key to ensuring that we can continue to deliver high-quality, cost-efficient, healthcare to our patients."
