19. Februar 2021 – In this decision, the Federal Administrative Court held that it is permissible to not include a hospital in the cantonal hospital list merely because it does not achieve the required minimum number of treatments. It stated that by treating a minimum number of cases, a hospital gains routine and experience, which ensures the quality of treatment. Accordingly, this criteria leads to an improvement in quality and is conducive to the cost-effectiveness of the treatments. The appeal was dismissed.
