German EBM undergoes further reform
This article was originally published in Clinica
Work is under way to reform the German points-based reimbursement catalogue (EBM) for outpatient care. A revised version has been in place since January 1st, 1996 (see Clinica No 707, p 7). Amendments were expected but the high number of points claimed by non-hospital doctors has also led to measures to clarify the catalogue.
