Final version of the Swiss TARDOC reimbursement system for outpatient care re-submitted for approval

On December 20, 2021, the tariff partners of the novel TARDOC reimbursement system for outpatient care (association of health insurers curafutura and association of physicians, FMH) re-submitted the substantially revised version 1.3 of TARDOC to the Federal Council. The new version entails an extension of cost neutrality, a simplification of tariffs, and an increase in transparency. Previously, the tariff partners submitted the TARDOC reimbursement system to the Federal Council in early 2021, but the Federal Council found the TARDOC tariff structure to have many drawbacks and that it would not guarantee cost neutrality.

The two tariff partners not involved so far, the association of hospitals (H+) and another association of health insurers (santésuisse), also actively participated in the revision of the TARDOC this time, as requested by the Federal Council.

The tariff partners hope that the Federal Council will assess the new reimbursement system in the first quarter of 2022 and that it could be implemented from January 2023.
