Pharmacy market reform: the state Duma is preparing a law to combat inflated prices pharmacies

Lawmakers quickly make decisions to protect the interests of Russians. On the eve of President of Russia Vladimir Putin urged to strictly respond to evidence of excessive prices pharmacies due to the coronavirus.

First Deputy Chairman of the faction “United Russia” Andrei Isayev said about the bill against price increases by pharmacies.

the Deputies, the Federal Antimonopoly service and the Ministry of health complete its revision and the draft law will be submitted to the state Duma in the near future.

“the Bill at the moment, we conceptually approved and is in the process of finalization with participation of the Antimonopoly service, Ministry of health, Ministry of industry and trade,” — said Isayev (the statement is posted on the website of “ER”).

According to him, now the work of the pharmacies is not regulated. For example, the work of grocery trading networks is governed by strict law, but “such a law does not exist to the same pharmacy network. Itself is a concept missing in our legislation”.

the Law also introduces the division of licensing of the “full license for pharmaceutical activity” and “incomplete license”.

the New law will eliminate the disadvantages of the regulation of pharmacy networks and overcharging will be eliminated.

In Russia there is no epidemic, but the number of pharmacies have decided to cash in on the fear of Chinese coronavirus: the price of masks has podskachila to 70 rubles.

In China, the number of cases of infection with coronavirus in excess of 28 thousand, the number of deaths reaches nearly 600 people.
