Update on list of procedures which are allowed in hospitals vs out-patient settings in exceptional circumstances in Switzerland

The Federal Department of Home Affairs has ordered a change in the Services Order (OPre) in February 2018. The change will come into force on January, 1st, 2019.

The change regards surgery in general. In-patient execution of some procedures, in the cases of varicose veins, hemorrhoids, inguinal hernias, adenoids, tonsils, arthroscopic knee operations, diagnostic and therapeutic procedures in utero (according to the Federal Office of Public Health (FOPH) version 1.0 of the reference document "List the of outpatient elective procedures," of the November 23rd , 2017) will now become covered by the obligatory healthcare insurance (assicurazione obbligatoria delle cure medico-sanitarie, AOMS). However, the costs will be covered only if, because of the particular circumstances, the out-patient execution is impossible.
