Landmark Judgment for the Pharma Industry Delivered by the Supreme Administrative Court


Borislav Boyanov & Co., represented the Association of the Researched-based Pharmaceutical Manufacturers (ARPharM), the Association of the American Pharmaceutical Companies at the American Chamber of Commerce in Bulgaria and the Bulgarian Association for Protection of Patients in a claim with Sofia City Court against a decision of the Management Board of the National Health Insurance Fund (NHIF) for a unilateral change to the reimbursement list. The Bulgarian Supreme Administrative Court (SAC) upheld the appeal. This is an important caseĀ for the Bulgarian pharmaceutical industry which unequivocally resolves the question whether the NHIF can unilaterally change the medications it reimburses.
