“The regional council is bluffing on drug policy. The direct distribution of medicines, undertaken to compensate for the deviation of the territorial and hospital pharmaceutical expenditure ceiling, is not producing the desired results". That's what he declares the parent company of Forza Italia, Alfredo Pallone, who sent a question to the president of the council, Piero Marrazzo and to the councilor for health, Augusto Battaglia.
“Here's the evidence. In the direct distribution measures - continued the parent company - the Local Health Authorities in fact purchase the drugs with an average discount of 35%, from which, however, the additional margins must be separated in favor of the wholesalers and other categories involved in the drug supply chain, for which the final savings are reduced for local health authorities to a discount of 10%. However, this saving is only theoretical, since the management of direct distribution measures involves an overall increase in the costs relating to the personnel assigned to control this activity and the related goods and services».
«In the Lazio Region – Pallone explained – it is the Asl Rm C that bears the greatest burdens relating to the administrative management of direct distribution measures, as confirmed by the exponential increase in the current financial year of the corporate balance sheet items relating to and services". «Overall, 2007 - observed Pallone - seems to record a reduction in the agreed pharmaceutical expenditure, which however is more than offset by the significant increase in hospital pharmaceutical expenditure. In short, the much-proclaimed saving on pharmaceutical expenditure that is rumored to be the result of an accounting trick. A financial ploy that discredits the repayment plan».
