Overview: The Covid-19 Hospital Relief Act passed by the German Parliament includes financial support for medical practices and medical facilities which treat Covid-19 patients.

Established doctors can get compensation payments if there is a reduction in fees as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. At the same time, additional costs arising from the care of COVID-19 patients are to be compensated. Against this background, the distribution of fees is to be adjusted promptly.
