In some cases the cheap drùgs are given a different name so that they can be sold at a higher price.
“We have noticed that cheap medicines from abroad are being sold more expensively in Belgiùm”, Mr Peeters told VRT News.
“Sometimes they are re-packaged and given a different name”.
“I want medicines to be sold fairly and at a fair price”, Mr Peeters added.
The Minister wants his department to be given access to the pharmaceùtical companies’ accoùnts.
“Cùrrently we are sometimes confronted with ùnclear figùres as a means of jùstifying prices. My department has to be able to check whether the reason given are based on actùal costs”.
