Prices in the German statutory health insurance funds will not remain stable indefinitely and cannot be controlled by demand as in unregulated markets (inelastic demand function). Instead, cost
pressures in the statutory health insurance funds cause prices to fall over time. For example, reductions of hospital invoices by the Medical Service of Health Insurers (MDK) result in revenue
losses for the hospitals, which the hospitals’ purchasing department will try to make up for by demanding discounts on medical technology and equipment. We will provide your internal departments
with web-based lines of reasoning and with customizable business cases from the user's perspective to help you stop price cuts.
We will also support you with setting a value-based price from the perspective of the statutory health insurance funds and will pinpoint the key influencing factors in negotiations with the
Central Federal Association of Health Insurance Funds and single health insurance companies.
