PCR price cap announced

The cost of polymerase chain reaction (PCR) tests for Covid-19 at private laboratories and clinics will be capped at 47 euros starting Thursday, following a Development Ministry decision Tuesday. 

The ministry decision stipulates that the maximum service charge (sample analysis, etc), including the required reagents and consumables, will be €35 and the maximum charge for taking a sample in private diagnostic laboratories and private clinics, will be €12. 

The cap does not apply to tests where the sample is taken outside the laboratory or clinic.
