German funds can see patient files, says court

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

Specific German health insurance fund committees are allowed access to sensitive patient hospital records as this is essential for an effective monitoring of hospital bills, said the federal social court in a ruling last week. But the ruling does not mean that the funds themselves would be able to request such documentation. This will remain the responsibility of the statutory health insurance funds' medical services groups.
