Rationalisierung und Wettbewerb im Arzneimittelmarkt


  • Herr, Annika


Rationalisierungsmaßnahmen sind bei steigenden Ausgaben in einem vor allem durch Umlagen finanzierten Gesundheitssystem wichtige Mittel zur Erreichung einer effizienten Produktion und Allokation der Ressourcen. In diesem Artikel werden verschiedene deutsche Regulierungsansätze zur Stärkung des Wettbewerbs und der Effizienz im Arzneimittelmarkt beschrieben und ökonomisch bewertet. Zwei Schwerpunkte der Analyse liegen auf dem Preiswettbewerb im Festbetragsmarkt durch Zuzahlungsbefreiungsgrenzen (sukzessive seit 2006) sowie auf der neuen Erstattungsregulierung des Arzneimittel-Neuordnungsgesetzes (AMNOG, seit 2011) für neue, patentierte Arzneimittel.
