The new EBM (points-related reimbursement catalogue) will mean considerable changes in German specialist health care. In ophthalmology, many procedures that used to be charged for separately will now come under a single higher tariff. Surgical ophthalmic procedures will, in part, be considerably upgraded. An exception is cataract operations which will be devalued.
