On 9 November 2018, the Minister of Health, Welfare and Sport (VWS) informed the House of Representatives about the developments regarding the contracting process for care provision.

The minister expresses his displeasure at the growth in the supply of non-contracted care in GGZ care and district nursing where this is demonstrably inefficient. This leads to higher healthcare costs and an unfair distribution of the limited available health personnel.
