Abstract
In June 2021, the Swiss parliament accepted a legislative proposal calling for the introduction of a fee to fight emergency department (ED) overcrowding. Although this issue remains a major challenge for health policies, the introduction of such a fee raises many questions, notably regarding health equity. However, other more equitable solutions exist: improving the case management of ED frequent users and improving coordination between ED and primary care.
