The Pharma Price Information (PPI) service of GÖG provides, upon request, quick, reliable and independent information on pharmaceutical prices in all member states of the European Union (EU), Norway, Switzerland and the UK.
Within Europe, medicine prices vary considerably. Despite a common currency – the euro – a comparison of prices remains difficult and requires considerable resources and knowledge. We offer up-to-date price information for individual countries and carry out comprehensive price comparisons.
Standard query: you are interested in the market availability or the prices of a specific medicine of a marketing authorisation holder.
For conducting a standard query, kindly specify in writing the medicines (trade name, market authorisation holder) and the countries of interest. If the query shall be limited to specific strengths (e.g., 20 mg) and pharmaceutical forms of the medicine and/or to selected price types (manufacturer’s price, pharmacy purchasing price, pharmacy retail price incl./excl. VAT), you are invited to indicate accordingly.
Extended query: you are interested in the prices of all pharmaceuticals of a defined active ingredient (originator medicine, generic or biosimilar medicines, parallel imported medicines, etc.).
For conducting an extended query, kindly indicate in writing the active ingredients and/or the ATC code (if available) and the countries of interest. You are welcome to specify the medicines that are of relevance, e.g. all medicines of the selected active ingredients, or solely the highest-priced and lowest-priced generic or biosimilar medicines. If the query shall be limited to specific strengths (e.g., 20 mg) and pharmaceutical forms of the medicine and/or to selected price types (manufacturer’s price, pharmacy purchasing price, pharmacy retail price incl./excl. VAT), you are encouraged to indicate accordingly.
Price quotation example of a PPI standard query: EUR 84 (excl. VAT) for one product, two strengths, one pharmaceutical form, all pack sizes, per country.
Additional offer: If requested, PPI results will include information on whether or not the medicines of the query are reimbursable, and on the extent of the statutory manufacturer discounts (if applicable). In a few countries (e.g. Germany), mandatory discounts provided by the pharmaceutical companies to the public payer(s) are statutorily laid down in national legislation, and these discounts are considered in the PPI results. Kindly note that PPI price information relates to official list prices as commercial discounts cannot be provided due to their confidential character.
