12 April 2017
CLINUVEL today announced that it had reached agreement with the German National Association of Statutory Health Insurance Funds (GKV-Spitzenverband or GKV-SV) for the treatment of erythropoietic protoporphyria (EPP) patients with CLINUVEL’s drug SCENESSE®
CLINUVEL had been in mandatory ‘negotiation’ with GKV-SV since August 2016. Under the German Pharmaceuticals Market Reorganisation Act (AMNOG) a pricing agreement was reached after an Arbitration Board was called. The outcome of the Arbitration Board is legally binding for all state insurers (‘Krankenkassen’) in Germany.
