Tarif 590 is compulsory since 1 January 2018 for all practitioners of complementary medicine practising in Switzerland: osteopaths, naturopaths, therapists, etc.
Sometimes abbreviated to T590, Tarif 590 contains the list of complementary medicine services recognized by Swiss insurance companies. Its purpose is to standardize the designation of therapies, acts and techniques practiced by therapists. It contains more than 100 Tarif headings and is valid throughout Switzerland
Tarif 590 was introduced by the Group of Insurers of Complementary Medicine, which includes the following insurances: Concordia, CSS, Groupe Mutuel, Helsana, ÖKK, Sanitas, Swica, Sympany and Visana.
In order to be able to bill with Tarif 590, you must have a CCR number. This is provided by one of the following Registries:
The 590 invoice is organized according to the following structure:
There is, however, an alternative which consists in manually filling in the official billing form provided for Tarif 590. Manual entry quickly becomes a tedious and time-consuming process
The use of software to generate 590 invoices that will be accepted by the insurances thus becomes indispensable.
In view of the situation, it is possible to feel a little forced... The use of software has a cost and a new way of working has to be relearned
At OptaMed, we believe that despite this, a software can bring many advantages and even finally simplify the administrative management of a practice and save you time!
