Solution in the struggle for corona test costs

Parliament is divided on who should bear the cost of testing for the coronavirus from next year. The National Council wants the federal government to continue to pay for the tests, but only until the end of March 2023.

The National Council wants the federal government to continue to pay for the tests, but only until the end of March 2023.

The financing and organization of the corona tests are regulated in the Covid 19 law – but only until the end of the year. The Federal Council wants to extend the legal basis for the tests and other measures. He had requested that from 2023 the cantons should bear these costs and no longer the federal government.

The cantons opposed this in the consultation. On Monday, the National Council decided on a way towards the exit, which Health Minister Alain Berset (50) also found acceptable: The test regime is to remain in place until the end of March next year, but will then be completely eliminated.
