The State Secretary of the Ministry of Health, Welfare and Sport, at the request of the House of Representatives enacted a temporary and ex gratia compensation for budget and caregivers with demonstrable financial loss as a result of the implementation problems of the drawing right PGB.

One of the tasks of the Care Institute to advise on the nature and scope of the insurance. For this it has developed a system in which the criterion of cost-effectiveness plays a role (in addition to effectiveness, necessity and feasibility). The idea behind the cost-effectiveness criterion that when an intervention is not cost effective and is included in the basic insurance, to the detriment of care it is cost effective: displacement effects. Cost-effectiveness is not undisputed criterion in the Netherlands. The use of the test to give a more solid social foundation, we want to make visible through research for the Dutch situation as the displacement effects of allowing care. At a general level, but also at the level of the patient groups who are the victims of compensation is not cost-effective interventions. This allows us to better explain to the public what choices need to be made, how can we do it as fairly as possible and what are the consequences thereof. Karl Claxton has done in the UK study could be a starting point for the investigation requested. England plays at cost package decisions a more emphatic role than in the Netherlands. In his research, Claxton looked for a suitable threshold for cost-effectiveness and the impact of allowing care with cost-effectiveness ratios above this threshold. This provides insight into the costs for which health benefits are obtained and the health loss incurred if it is not chosen for certain interventions (opportunity cost). The results of such research for the Dutch situation get so far "unidentifiable victims" a face and the choices and thus the public discussion more concrete.
