Pharma Industry Committee

Pharma Industry Committee

The main aim of this sectoral Committee is to promote the needed reforms of the health sector, health insurance model and advocate for the full harmonization of legislation with the EU and removing legislative obstacles. The committee enables FIC members with interest in health sector to jointly articulate interests and activities. They include in the first place pharma and medical devices companies, as well as insurance companies and different types of healthcare providers. Key issues to be tackled are key laws for healthcare (Law and Health Insurance and Law on Health protection), as well as the needed changes in health insurance model and better allocation of funds in the sector.

Committee was established in September 2018, with the approval of all the members from the Pharma Industry and now has over 10 members.

Main priorities defined in Pharma Industry Committee Programme 2020-22 are:

  • Finding a systemic solution for financing the introduction of new drugs on the Drug List;
  • Improving the transparency & Predictability in the process of placing drugs on the NHIF (RFZO) Drug List;
  • Improving timelines adherence in the administrative procedures and licensing of medicines (ALIMS);
  • Change in the pricing system to enable better access of medicines. Existing drug price “Dualism”
