Federal Council wants to improve financing of premium reductions

28 October 2020 – As a counter-proposal to the premium-relief-initiative, the Federal Council's proposal stipulates that each Canton must pay a minimum contribution linked to its total gross costs. What he criticises about the initiative is that it is mainly the Confederation that is to contribute to financing the premium reductions, although health costs are strongly influenced by cantonal decisions.
