Jun 2022

On June 3, 2022, the Swiss Federal Council rejected TARDOC outpatient tariff structure version 1.3, which was submitted in December 2021. According to the Federal Council, major progress has been made, but version 1.3 does still not meet the legal requirements, in particular cost neutrality.

The Federal Council invited the tariff partners to continue developing the TARDOC outpatient tariff structure and insists that all relevant stakeholders take part in the process (including the association of health insurers santésuisse).

More information can be found on the website of the Federal Council. Opinions of the two health insurer companies, curafutura, and santésuisse, can be found here and here, respectively.
