We hope you had a healthy start into the new year. The Corona crisis is forcing everyone into home office – no problem for us as a digital company.
The aG-DRG-System 2021 is valid since 01.01.2021. The calculation process of the federal base rate (BBFW) is new and controversially discussed. The BBFW is not yet available. It is necessary to calculate the Reimbursement for the different DRGs.
Proposal procedures (OPS & DRG):
Both for new OPS-codes and for the further development of the G-DRG system, the proposal procedures are still in progress, the deadlines will soon expire. OPS-code applications can still be submitted to the BfArM until the end of February, DRG proposals can be submitted to the InEK until the end of March 2021. We are happy to assist you in this process.
Digital Health applications (DiGA):
The application process for digital health applications (DiGA) is continuously possible without a deadline at the BfArM. Currently (05.01.2021), 10 DiGAs (3 permanent, 7 provisional) are listed. Additionally, the current testing phase for provisionally listed health applications (12 months at the moment) is to be extended to 2 years in the future.
As of February 2021, we expect the new key figures and hospital performance data for Germany. We are also at your disposal for market analyses.

We are looking forward to a joint successful 2021.
