No disadvantages from the care reform?

Federal Minister of Health promises improvements for all those in need of care

According to the Federal Minister of Health Hermann Gröhe, the planned nursing reform should bring benefits for all those in need. Gröhe promised to the “Westdeutsche Allgemeine Zeitung” that no one would be worse off than before through the reform. Disadvantages are not to be feared.

"With the upcoming improvements in nursing care, we have undertaken a feat of strength in this term that will benefit all those in need of nursing care," said the Federal Minister of Health in a current press release on the presentation of the figures for social nursing care insurance from 2013 The financial situation of social long-term care insurance has not been in a long time, but reserves have to be used sparingly, since the number of people in need of long-term care will increase significantly in the next few years.

Introduction of new levels of care and further improvements in performance According to the Federal Minister of Health, five levels of care should apply to the approximately 2.5 million people in need of care by 2017 at the latest - instead of the three so far. The classification of today's benefit recipients in the new care levels is done automatically and they will continue to receive at least the usual benefits, Gröhe continues. The first performance improvements are already planned for 2015. In view of the reserves of currently 6.17 billion euros in long-term care funds, there is actually room for maneuver here. In addition, the good economic situation led to social care insurance posting a surplus of just under 630 million euros for 2013 alone. The nursing care reform therefore leaves more scope for substantive discussions, since the financial pressure to act is currently rather moderate. (fp)
