Care Agreements help restrain the growth in care expenditure

Agreements made by the Minister of Health, Welfare and Sport with medical specialists, general practitioner, insurers and other parties in the care sector have very probably achieved their goals and restrained the growth in care expenditure.

The Court of Audit has drawn this conclusion from an audit of the Care Agreements. The audit focused on the results of the agreements between 2012 and 2015 in the curative care sector. This sector accounts for 37% of all care costs (€26 billion).
