The Polish Ministry of Health has recently launched  'Dlapacjenta.mz.gov.pl', a portal providing practical information  on the reimbursement of medicines.  

Designed as an easy-to-use and convenient information  source on medicines reimbursed by the National  Health fund, patients are the first target group.  

Through the new portal, patients have access to information  on all procedures and conditions for the reimbursement  of prescribed drugs.  

Information includes:

  • The formal requirements pertaining to the prescriptions  issued by their doctor; and  
  • The treatment of their prescription at the pharmacy  and the applicable options in this respect.

An online search service allows patients to check whether  their prescribed medicines qualify for reimbursement  as well as the amount or percentage that will be refunded.  With the search to they can look up medicines by  active ingredient name or by brand name.  

The portal is not just for patients; doctors and pharmacists  can also make use of this source of information.  They can find information on the proper way of filling out  and handling a prescription according to the regulations  in force. Doctors can also find the list of reimbursed  medicines in PDF format, and pharmacists can access  the same online search service as patients.
