In particular, the AP outlined that CZ is now working with new policies for the assessment of authorisation applications for specialist medical rehabilitation without admission and further established that CZ has made sufficient improvements in this regard. In addition, the AP noted that CZ has removed the relevant medical person data of insured persons from its systems.
