24 September 2021 – The Federal Council wants to improve the financing of health insurance premium reductions. At its meeting on 17 September 2021, it adopted the dispatch and referred it to parliament.

Each canton's contribution to premium reductions is to correspond to a minimum percentage of health care costs.
