Equivalent Formula – Similar Price
A pilot project for equation of prices for drugs with equivalent chemical formula will be launched by the Ministry of health in January, 2017.
Commenting on that project Olga Golodets, Vice Premier Minister, remarked, that the Ministry of Health will compare prices for drugs with the same chemical formula. There are different suggestions on the price range on such drugs of no more than 10-20 percent. A tenfold difference which is sometimes currently observed, should not exist.
The aim of the above-mentioned project is to regulate and keep within certain bounds the prices for drugs with the same chemical formula.
