Prof. Hagist Expert in Bundestag Hearing

On 1 April, Professor Dr. Christian Hagist was invited as an expert to a hearing of the Interior Committee of the German Bundestag.

The subject of the hearing was the introduction of a lump-sum allowance for federal civil servants who wish to insure themselves in National Health Insurance. This corresponds to the employer contribution known in the free economy. Professor Hagist reported to the committee on the distributional effects of such a reform and spoke in favor of an alternative reform of the aid instead of the introduction of a flat-rate aid.
