2018 POLICY ISSUES

1. Pricing and reimbursement of medicines/parenteral nutrition

Pricing policy

  • Determination of published prices for new medicines used in hospitals prevents timely reimbursement of new medicines
  • Therapeutic Reference Pricing (TRP): current methodology for determination of reimbursed price paid by the CHIF at the ATC level 3-5 results in high co-payments and limited patient access to medicines

Reimbursement policy

  • Inadequatly transparent criteria for reimbursement decision making
  • Limited options for contracting relevant for reimbursement

2. Health care financing

Unsustainable health care system financing that results from:

  • insufficient revenues,
  • inefficient allocation of resources,
  • increasing health care expenditures,
  • contextual factors:
  • unfavorable fiscal context,
  • demographic changes,
  • universal health care coverage guaranteed by the law

3. E-Health

  • There is currently no policy in place, and the aim of the Committee is to address this issue
