Abstract

In the Republic of Macedonia, the procurement of medicines from Positive List (PL) was carried out by the Health Insurance Fund (HIF) through centralized international tenders until 2005. The main criterion for selecting the best tender offer, was the medicine price, which determined its reimbursment cost. The last International tender took place in 2005 and it was valid until the agred quantities of medicines were consumed. The external reference pricing system was established in 2007. Its latest methodology uses the comparative reimburses for the PL medicines, and it takes into consideration the Purchasing Parity Power. The unified medicine prices were also established in 2007 based on ex - factory price, whole sale mark - ups and pharmacy mark - ups.
