GOVERMENT OWES TO GREEK PHARMACY !!
This is an article from the Pharmacists blog (farmakopoioi.blogspot). It talks about the fact that “OPAD” a public insurance agency for people working for the government, owes 8-10 months of payments to the pharmacists which have to cover 75-90% of the drugs, since they have to pay their suppliers several months before they get paid. If you also consider the fact that they have already prepaid the amount of the value added tax which accounts to these unpaid drugs, you can clearly understand why this pushes smaller pharmacies to get loans. The article speaks about the high cost drugs which according to law have to be paid to the pharmacies within 45 days, while they haven’t been paid for over 6 months. The pharmacies can buy these drugs only directly by the pharmaceutical companies which require a payment in advance. It’s a pity that the government doesn’t obey it’s own laws.
