* Reduction of the reimbursement KVG/LAMal to 0.30 CHF/day
Following a decision by the Swiss Federal Office of Public Health (SFOPH), the KVG/LAMal reimbursement rate was reduced to a single price of CHF 0.30 per day for the entire duration of the treatment from 1 April 2019.
In response to this reduction, we have filed an application to the SFOPH to obtain a new increase of the reimbursement rate. Further details can be found here.
