FAQ - Questions on the subject of business management advice for nursing care facilities

Many (prospective) entrepreneurs from the care sector are brimming with creative ideas and new concepts. Why do they need advice?

Nursing care is an extremely regulated market. Three different regulatory systems overlap here. The German Länder lay down regulatory options and limits through Länder nursing home laws (in NRW, for example, the Housing and Participation Act (WTG). The federal government steers the provision of services, including financing aspects, through law governing nursing care insurance and (for outpatient care) law governing health insurance, and the civil law part by means of the Housing and Care Contract Act (Wohn- und Betreuungsvertragsgesetz (WBVG)). How these systems intermesh is not always void of contradictions. Entrepreneurial initiative can get tangled up and bogged down in these systems. We provide you advice early on in the conceptual work and support you in the design and execution.

What is special about investment costs in nursing care facilities?

In addition to the financing of care rates, accommodation and meals in the nursing care insurance system, investment costs were regulated separately when the nursing care insurance system was introduced in 1995 (§ 82 of Social Code Volume XI "Financing of nursing care facilities"). The German Länder had reserved the right to issue regulations governing the building infrastructure. As a result, there are 16 different investment cost systems today. As a rule, investment costs are borne by those in need of nursing care. Some of the German Länder relieve the burden on people in need of nursing care by means of an individual nursing home allowance, a benefit similar to social assistance. Otherwise, social aid is provided in the form of assistance for care. Law governing investment costs must therefore be examined separately for each of the Länder.

Why are negotiations on care rates so important for your care facility?

All facilities that have concluded a care agreement with respective funding agencies are obliged by the Nursing Care Insurance Act (PflegeVG) to constantly review their economic efficiency. In other words, the business success of a nursing facility is determined to a large extent by successful nursing rate negotiations. Nursing rate negotiations focus on nursing services, accommodation and meals as well as investment costs. These are negotiated individually and require sound preparation. The individual German Länder have widely differing regulations in this regard. In some of the Länder, nursing facilities can decide themselves whether negotiations on individual nursing rates or negotiations on a flat rate are more appropriate for their facility. Business management advice covers an assessment of profitability, including with a view to competitiveness with other care facilities. We will be happy to support you in this. We have the know-how that it takes as well as the tools that are needed in the form of a tailor-made management information system.

As an entrepreneur, how can you structure the succession process for your company and your assets?

Many details need to be carefully taken into account in business successions, restructurings as well as in the purchase and divestiture of a company. Succession involves corporate law, inheritance law and tax issues as well as personal goals. Every company succession has individual motives. As reliable partners, our consultants will help you develop the right strategy while taking into account emotional and social aspects of importance to you. We support you in your planning and in the search for a suitable successor.
