With the amount of restriction Heiniger takes a proposal of the expert group, prepared on behalf of the Federal Council measures for cost containment in health care.

A Hirslanden-Clause?

The lever, the screw tightened, is list the the Hospital. With this, the Canton granted the power contracts to the individual hospitals and 55 percent of the treatment in the follow-up costs in the basic insurance. In 2022, the government will provide a new hospital list. In view of this, Heiniger wants to tighten now, the hospital law. The current list dates back from 2012.

"Competition is only to play, where it exerts good effect, otherwise it needs to combat it," he says. And he also says who he wants to exclude: "those Who want to make quick money in health care, it does not belong on the list."
