Abstract

In January 2009, the existing risk structure compensation scheme between sickness funds has been expanded to include morbidity-oriented factors. The measure aims at preventing risk selection, improving care for patients with chronic diseases and equalizing starting points for competition between sickness funds. The introduction of morbidity-oriented risk structure compensation ("morbi-RSA") entails a major reorganization of financial flows which is highly controversial.
