Selecting health insurance and the plan that's likely to best meet one's needs is no simple task. While practically all insurance coverage, medicines are included, it is also in a limited scheme and is based on the medicines inclusion to a list or to the formulary. While this is so, health insurance definitely helps patients' access to medicines... The access to the whole abstract and the presentation file is available to FIP members and to congress participants of that specific congress.
