Decision on general conditional reimbursement for alendronate-containing medicines

Decision on general conditional reimbursement for alendronate-containing medicines

In cooperation with the Reimbursement Committee, we have decided to grant alendronate-containing medicines general conditional reimbursement from 5 March 2012. Reimbursement is conditional as it is reserved for patients with low-energy hip fractures. For any other patients who are treated with alendronate, the doctor must apply for single reimbursement, and the guiding criteria for single reimbursement remain unchanged for these patients. Alendronate is used for the treatment of osteoporosis (brittle bon...

Changed criteria for single reimbursement for osteoporosis medicines other than alendronate

Changed criteria for single reimbursement for osteoporosis medicines other than alendronate

As of 5 March 2012, it will only be possible to obtain a single reimbursement grant for the other medicines used in osteoporosis treatment for patients that cannot use alendronate. The criteria for single reimbursement are changed because of the large price gaps between the different medicines, where the reimbursement price of alendronate is by far the lowest.
