The previous financing model of inpatient hospices for SHI insured was problematic. Inpatient hospice units (IHU) were forced to acquire on average nearly 30 per cent of their budget from donations although only 10% was foreseen. In addition, terminally ill patients in the end stage of their disease were burdened with incalculable co-payments. Therefore, from August 2009, co-payments for patients in IHUs are no longer required and IHUs now receive sufficient funding from the sickness funds.
