    Oral implants "sky-high fees", low-cost implant advertisements to deceive patients, "benefit fees" and "introduction fees" to buy customers.
    .
    .
    In recent years, the demand for dental implants in China has continuously shown double-digit rapid growth, but there have also been problems such as irregular charges in some medical institutions
    .
     
    In order to standardize the charges for dental medical services and consumables, the National Medical Insurance Bureau issued the "Notice on Carrying out Special Governance of Oral Implant Medical Service Charges and Consumables Prices" on the 8th, proposing that the price regulation target of the medical services of a single conventional implant in tertiary public hospitals will be set at 4500 yuan, and areas or medical institutions that meet specific conditions are allowed to relax appropriately, and the relaxation ratio will not exceed 20%.

     
    Look at point 1: how to determine the regulatory price of dental implant medical services
     
    The cost of oral implants is roughly divided into three parts: implants, crowns and medical services, and the cost of traditional Chinese medicine treatment services accounts for a relatively high
    proportion.
     
    Previously, the National Medical Insurance Bureau carried out oral implant charges and medical service price survey registration, and preliminary results showed that the high cost of medical services is one
    of the important reasons for the high cost of dental implants.
    Taking the single conventional cultivation of public medical institutions in various provinces as an example, the average cost of medical services is more than 6,000 yuan, and the cost of some localities is more than 9,000 yuan
    .
     
    Weng Linjia, director of the Pharmaceutical Price Division of the Pharmaceutical Price Recruitment Department of the National Medical Insurance Bureau, introduced that the cost of medical services is high, not only because of unreasonable project settings and excessive decomposition, but also because of excessive pricing and indiscriminate charging
    .
     
    The National Medical Insurance Bureau solicited opinions in the early stage, and most of them believed that the whole process of costs should be guided back to a reasonable range when standardizing charges, and some opinions believed that the value of technical services, the level of technology, the degree of risk and the scarcity of resources should be considered
    .
     
    After comprehensive opinions from patients, medical institutions and other parties, the price control target of medical services for a single conventional implant in tertiary public hospitals was determined to be 4500 yuan, including outpatient examination, biochemical examination and imaging examination, implant implantation, crown insertion and other costs, but excluding the cost of implants and crowns
    .
     
    The main purpose of the special treatment of oral implant prices is to "control" the abnormally high prices of some hospitals in some areas, and the current prices of medical services have been implemented in areas within the target of regulation and control, and they are still implemented
    according to the current prices.
     
    For regions or medical institutions that meet specific conditions, the notice clearly allows appropriate relaxation of regulatory targets
    .
    For example, areas with developed economies and high labor costs are allowed to relax the price control targets of medical services according to local realities, and the proportion of relaxation should not exceed 20%.

     
    "The specific charges of public medical institutions are subject to the price policy formulated and published by the local medical security department, and if it involves additional services such as bone grafting, soft tissue transplantation, periodontal treatment, etc.
    , the actual charges may be broken
    .
    " Weng Linjia said
    .
     
    Highlight two: through the collection of mining, bidding hanging net to promote implants, crown price reduction
     
    In addition to standardizing the cost of oral implant medical services, the National Medical Insurance Bureau will also carry out measures such as collecting implant consumables and bidding on the crown to further promote the price governance of oral implants
    .
     
    The circular makes it clear that the alliance led by Sichuan Province and with the participation of all provinces will be implemented to centralize the procurement of implant dental consumables, require all public medical institutions that provide oral implant services to participate, mobilize private medical institutions to actively participate, and realize the exchange of quantity for price
    .
     
    At present, the price range of high-end brand implants purchased by public medical institutions is 4000 yuan to 6000 yuan per set, and other implants are 2000 yuan to 3500 yuan per set, and there is still room for inflated prices in the circulation process, and the price will decline to
    varying degrees after collection.
     
    Due to the high personalized requirements of the processing and production of dental crowns, at this stage, we are mainly exploring the promotion of price
    reduction through bidding and hanging nets.
    Sichuan Province took the lead in the trial to form a reference system for the price of the crown, and the National Medical Insurance Bureau guided other provinces to implement price linkage
    .
    Public medical institutions are independently selected according to clinical needs, and sell crowns according to the "zero difference rate" of the hanging net price, of which the crowns produced by third-party factories include the cost of returning to the factory during the implantation process, and no additional charges shall be charged
    to patients.
     
    It is reported that most of the crowns purchased by public medical institutions from third-party factories are more than 1,000 yuan each, and the price of self-made crowns is higher, and there will be a certain degree of decline
    after bidding on the net.
     
    In addition, we will explore the establishment of a warning system for abnormal prices of oral implants, and include all types of medical institutions at all levels and types of medical institutions at all levels that have more price complaints and reports, whose pricing is significantly higher than the local average, who refuse or passively participate in dental implant collection, who fabricate facts to detract from the products that participate in the collection and selection of products, and who do not cooperate with the regulation and control work to maintain inflated prices
    .
     
    Highlight 3: How to ensure oral implant services that match the quality and price
     
    How to ensure high-quality oral implant medical services after the price of services has dropped?
     
    According to experts, the quality of oral implant service involves many factors, not only related to the quality of implants, crowns and the technical level of doctors, but also related to the patient's original oral conditions and post-implant dental habits
    .
     
    The special treatment of oral implant prices has taken measures in many aspects such as implant consumable collection and medical service prices to ensure that the masses can obtain high-quality, efficient and affordable missing teeth restoration services
    .
     
    In the centralized procurement of implant consumables, the National Medical Insurance Bureau will guide Sichuan Province to explore procurement methods that meet the characteristics of implants, respect the right to choose clinically and use habits, and adopt a number of selected methods to provide patients with implant consumables at different levels of demand, so as to promote the quality of oral implant service to remain stable
    .
     
    At the same time, the price adjustment of oral implant medical services is linked to the quality of medical treatment, guiding medical institutions to improve medical quality
    .
    For example, medical institutions with high success rates of oral implants, open service quality information, and commitment to supervision and inspection can relax regulatory targets
    .
     
    It is reported that the treatment measures for the prices of implants, crowns, medical services and other prices will be implemented
    in various provinces from December 2022 to March 2023.
