According to rztetag, investor-operated MVZs must be regulated


/Lumos sp,

Mainz The federal government and the Bundestag must implement the repeatedly announced legal regulation of investor-operated medical care centers (iMVZ). The 128th German Medical Association today called for appropriate measures to be implemented in the Health Care Strengthening Act (GVSG).

The high dynamic in the establishment of iMVZ and iMVZ chains requires effective framework specifications for the operation of MVZ in a timely manner. These should make it possible, on the one hand, to continue to use the advantages of MVZ and, on the other hand, to make it more difficult to influence medical decisions in iMVZ for commercial reasons, according to the resolution.

According to the Doctors’ Day, the need for action regarding the iMVZ arises from the primacy of patient welfare, which is enshrined in both the medical certificate and the medical professional regulations, as well as from the orientation towards the common good as an essential feature of freelance work.

The independence of medical decisions from commercial disincentives must be structurally better secured with appropriate regulatory measures. In addition, a focus of the care offering on particularly lucrative services, which would have a detrimental effect on patient-centered and caring care, must be counteracted. It is also important to protect the funds raised from solidarity contributions for patient care from being drained to non-specialist national or international financial investors.

The resolution points out that the Federal Medical Association (BK) had already presented positions on the need for regulation regarding MVZ at the beginning of 2023. This contains comprehensive, concrete formulation suggestions for corresponding legal regulations. © aha/
