The subcommittees

The plenum appoints subcommittees to prepare decisions and resolutions.

These subcommittees consist of

  • one impartial chair,
  • six representatives from the umbrella organizations of the statutory health insurance providers,
  • and a total of six representatives from the umbrella organizations of care providers (the German Hospital Federation and the National Associations of Statutory Health Insurance Physicians and Dentists).

The German Hospital Federation and the National Associations of Statutory Health Insurance Physicians and Dentists appoint two representatives each, unless the plenum determines a different structure based on the tasks of that subcommittee.

Patient representatives are also present at subcommittee meetings and take part in discussions. Representatives from other organizations and federations are involved as required and experts brought in as needed.

Unlike the plenum, subcommittees meet only in closed sessions.
They draft the results of their discussions as recommended resolutions for the plenum.
