The proposal is for the change to take effect from November 1

The proposed change, unanimously accepted by the Ministry of Health Management, will allow from November 1, 2022, drugs that are written on a white prescription to be dispensed both electronically and on paper.

The basis for a change in the regulation on the terms and conditions for prescribing and dispensing medicinal products was the dozens of reports of difficulties received by medical professionals who do not have a contract with the NHIF and who have to incur additional costs for the implementation of medical software for prescribing of medicinal products, as well as doctors working in medical facilities for hospital care, who prescribe medicinal products on a white prescription form to hospitalized patients in the respective medical facility.

Patient organizations and BLS against fully electronic prescriptions

The aim of the proposed project is to enable all medical professionals to prescribe medicinal products on white prescription forms both electronically and on paper.

In no EU member state, with the exception of Estonia, is there a categorical obligation to prescribe medicines only on electronic prescriptions. In all European practice, both types of prescription are allowed.

How the e-prescription system will work

If the proposed changes are accepted, the full access of the population to medicinal products will be ensured and guaranteed, including the possibility of prescribing medicinal products during a home visit by a doctor will not be limited. The proposed changes have been posted for 30 days of public comment on the Ministry of Health website.
