Federal Joint Committee (Gemeinsamer Bundesausschuss)

The Federal Joint Committee is the highest decision-making body of the joint self-government of doctors, dentists, psychotherapists, hospitals and health insurance funds in Germany. It issues guidelines which determine the list of benefits that are provided by statutory health insurance, and hence determines what healthcare benefits are reimbursed by statutory health insurance. Furthermore, it adopts quality assurance schemes for out-patient and in-patient healthcare.
