Patient cashiers have approved new drug and medical help lists (MAPs) needed for a pharmacy.
From now on, these lists are prolonged by one-third and total of 89 drugs and measures covered by the mandatory health insurance budget (PSG) are earmarked for them.
"The list of drugs needed in pharmacies currently contains medicines to relieve pain, lower blood pressure, heart enlargement drugs, glaucoma, and antibiotics for the treatment of infectious diseases, diabetes, depression, asthma, etc. Pharmacies also have diagnoses to determine blood glucose, diapers, and other measures most commonly needed by patients, "said Evaldas Stropus, Head of the Department of State Patient Compensation at the Department of Health (VLK).
According to him, legislation stipulates that pharmacies must keep medicines and MPPs paid on PSDF daily on the lists of essential medicines and measures. If a pharmacist avoids offering or does not offer the necessary drugs because the pharmacy does not have it and instead attempts to give another injection, residents are urged to immediately inform the local hospital fund (ICD).
"It is important to know that these lists include those drugs and supplements for which the PSDF is the lowest, so the patient who comes to the pharmacy can be sure he will find the lowest treatment or MPP listed price and will not be paid," he stressed. E. Stropus.
These medicines and medicines must be provided by each pharmacy – the list can be found here.
