New rules oblige pharmacists to issue cheap drugs

New regulations aimed at lowering the public sectors drug costs oblige pharmacists to offer their patients the cheapest version of the medicine containing the necessary active ingredient with offenders facing the termination of their contract with the countrys main healthcare provider, EOPYY.

According to the new regulations, which were made public in the Government Gazette, if patients want the expensive, non-generic drug, they will be asked to indicate this preference by placing their signature on the prescription. While EOPYY will cover the entire cost of the generic drug, a patient opting for a more expensive medicine will be obliged to pay the difference.
