Enforcement of New Pricing and Reimbursement Ordinance in Croatia

Croatian Institute for Health Insurance (HZZO) has informed all marketing authorization holders that 22nd August 2009 is deadline for adjustment of thier prices with "Low on Medicines" (Narodne Novine 71/07) and with new  "Ordinance about measures for determination of prices of medicines and ways for reporting about wholesale prices" (Narodne Novine no. 60/08).

According to new Ordinance price should be 65% of average (composite) wholesale prices from EU.

 

List of all Croatian medicines registered with Croatian Institute for Health Insurance (HZZO) and with prices requested by Croatian Institute for Health Insurance (HZZO) is published at HZZO web site.  This information may be valuable to you for the reference about expected wholesale prices of medicines at Croatian market.

We suppose that many pharmaceutical manufacturers may not be willing to accept low prices imposed by HZZO and it is not clear about what will happen to manufacturers who does not accept requested prices.  It may happen that lot of manufacturers will not be included into new reimbursement list.  So, we should probably wait until autumn for the results of new Croatian pricing and reimbursement list.
