Talks on German outpatient care begin
This article was originally published in Clinica
One of the two main areas of proposed German health reforms, outpatient care, is under discussion among working groups. Talks among the three government parties will follow in the next few weeks. It is not yet certain whether approval in the SPD- dominated Bundesrat, the upper house, will be required. A spokesman for the Health Ministry believes that the bill will probably be approved some time next year and come into force in 1997. No details of the talks have been released.
