A letter to PM has been written by a group of doctors and health activists highlighting discrepancies in drug pricing which is allowing companies and hospitals to make profits on essential medicines while contributing to high out-of-pocket expenditure on health for patients. It was accompanied by quotations from companies to hospitals offering special discounted prices. Alliance of Doctors for Ethical Healthcare (ADEH) said that they would submit the documents exhibiting flaws in the pricing of several medicines and appliances to streamline the prices and keep a check on undue margins of pharmaceutical companies and hospitals. It also recommended making the uniform code of pharma marketing practices mandatory, to curb the practice of giving freebies to the healthcare providers.
