Upgrades to reference prices published by the Spanish Ministry of Health

The Boletín Oficial del Estado has published in its edition of August 2, an Order on Reference Prices, marking the entrance of biosimilars into this system. From October pharmacies have to dispense drugs at a price set by the Order and will begin to provide savings to the Spanish NHS (126 million euros according to the Ministry of Health).

The order comes with 28 new sets, whose formation was the subject of many allegations by the pharmaceutical sector; they include 16 newly created sets of presentations of drugs that are dispensed in pharmacies and 12 sets of drug presentations dispensed in hospitals.
