Hungary's drug makers and drug distributors agreed at a meeting with government officials on Friday to pay Ft 20 billion this year and Ft 22.5 billion next year into the state's social insurance fund in order to make up for a shortfall in the National Health Fund (OET), the Prime Minister's Office announced. The drug makers and distributors could decide to divide the amount among themselves based on increases in turnover or the number of products each company has on the market, Health Minister Jenő Rácz said after the meeting.
