Abstract

The article analyzes the existing model of regulation of prices on medicines in the Russian Federation. Problems of this model are described (especially the fact that it stimulates elimination of cheaper medicines from the product range of pharmacies and pharmaceutical distributors and hinders investments into local development of innovative medicines). Ways to solve these problems are proposed. It is demonstrated that all medicines should be divided into three groups according to their price, and for each group a special method of price regulation should be used. It is also proposed to implement a guaranteed level of profitability of local developers of innovative medicines.
