“Despite the decision made by the National Health Fund, GPs will be able to prescribe the free medication for Covid-19 patients in one week’s time at the earliest,” said Dr. Georgi Mindov, from the Association of General Practitioners in Sofia.  

No agreement between the National Health Fund’s supervisory board and the Bulgarian Medical Association has not been concluded, as yet, BNR’s Anelia Dzhambazka reports. According to Dr.Mindov the medication, that will be free of charge to the public, will only be for patients with complications. Some of the medicines are injected and cannot be applied at home, others are not available in pharmacies. Another problem, pharmacists say, is that according to the rules now in place, a free e-prescription can only be filled by one pharmacy.
