According to the German Association of Pharmacists, statutory health insurance companies spent 45 billion euros on medicines last year. As the association announced on Monday, citing its own calculations, that was 10.1 percent more than in the previous year. According to the information, a total of 714 million packs of drugs were prescribed. As early as 2020, the health insurance funds’ expenditure on pharmaceuticals had increased more than expected by 6.6 percent to 40.9 billion euros, it said. The Association of Pharmacists sees the causes of the cost increases primarily in demographic developments and medical advances. (dpa)
