Price cap on medical devices likely
Union Health Minister J.P. Nadda said the government was considering capping prices of other medical devices, after the success with coronary stents.
In February, the National Pharmaceutical Pricing Authority (NPPA) had capped the price of bare-metal stents at Rs. 7,260 and drug-eluting stents at Rs. 29,600, after declaring coronary stents as “essential med- icines.”
The National Pharmaceutical Pricing Authority (NPPA) is a government regulatory agency that controls the prices of pharma- ceutical drugs in India. The NPPA was formed on 29 August 1997. It has been given powers to implement and enforce the Drugs Price Control Order (DPCO).
