According to the Federal Council's decision psychological psychotherapy will in future be paid for by basic health insurance. The prerequisite is that it is ordered by a doctor.
Currently, it is only covered by the basic insurance if the therapist is employed by a doctor and the service is provided under his or her supervision.
All questions and answers on the prescription model can also be found at FSP.
