Up to 4% Price Hike of Over-the-counter Drugs Expected in Bulgaria
A price hike of up to 4% of over-the-counter drugs is expected, according to professor Ilko Getov, President of the Bulgarian Pharmaceutical Union.
The main reason for the increased prices is the expiration of the one-year drug price freeze moratorium, Bulgarian Telegraph Agency reports.
The organization will make a proposal to the future parliament for legislation changes in order to address the problems of reaching small and remote villages and settlements.
Getov claimed that the best option would be to introduce the so-called mobile pharmacists. He pointed out that such a practice has been adopted in many European countries.
