Orthodontists rate reduced by 29% E-mail
The NZa, the rates of orthodontists with 29% lower. Research shows that years of high rates are used, allowing customers to unnecessary costs. The NZa intends rates between now and 2009 in four steps back to the desired level. The first stage is a tariff reduction of 2.5% per 1 July, 2007. The NZa the orthodontists and dentists concerned the opportunity to respond before proceeding to a final decision.

Consumers pay excessive prices for orthodontics. This is evident from an examination of costs and revenues of the profession in 2006 by order of the NZa runs. The rates of orthodontists have been years of discussion. In anticipation of the results of the investigation in 2005 a discount of 8% first introduced. Since then, the rates for orthodontists frozen. This means that annual inflation has not been implemented. With the current proposal, the total discount to 29%

The savings to consumers from 2009 is expected to be approximately 25 million euro per year. For example, a treatment with removable bracket that is now 1100, - cost in 2009 was approximately Euro 900, - costs.

At the same time, the NZa the rates of orthodontic operations at the dentist reduce. For dentists, the same rates apply for orthodontists. The discount arrested for dentists on average slightly higher, because they currently charge higher rates than orthodontists. Until recently, there were charges by profession, but since the entry into force of the Law Market Health (WMG) is a per-delivered care. The NZa considers it unfair that dentists can use a higher rate for the same transaction.

The proposal is consistent with the role and powers of the new NZa as supervisor of the health. Consumer interests are central to this project. In the coming years will NZa the other professions and their charges in the carers for example. About rates of orthodontics existed long discussion, so grab the NZa these rates first. Orthodontics is usually especially for youth in the supplement package for consumers and only in special cases in the basic. This means that consumers often pay the cost of orthodontics.

The NZa submit the proposal today to the orthodontists and dentists. They may respond to the plans for the NZa makes a final decision. The insurers and consumer groups are consulted in the coming period.
