Federal Joint Committee (G-BA)

The Federal Joint Committee ("Gemeinsamer Bundesausschuss", G-BA) is the highest decision-making body of the joint self-government of physicians, dentists, psychotherapists, hospitals and health insurance funds in Germany.
It issues directives for the benefit catalogue of the statutory health insurance funds (GKV) for more than 70 million insured persons and thus specifies which services in medical care are reimbursed by the GKV. In addition, the G-BA specifies measures for quality assurance in inpatient and outpatient areas of the healthcare system.
