Comprehensive support with the negotiation of the reimbursement price according to ยง 130b SGB V

With the GKV Financial Stabilization Act (GKV-FinStG), which came into force in Germany in 2023, the legal framework for negotiating reimbursement prices has become significantly more complex. Further legislative changes are to be expected in the coming months and years. In this dynamic environment, it is important for pharmaceutical manufacturers, with regards to negotiating the reimbursement price, to pursue the optimal strategy from the very beginning of the AMNOG process.

Price negotiation with the GKV-SV linked to the German AMNOG procedure

Since January 2011, the AMNOG has regulated the market access for drugs in Germany. On the basis of a benefit dossier, which the pharmaceutical manufacturer submits when entering the market or upon market authorization of a new therapeutic indication, the G-BA decides on the additional benefit of the drug. Based on this assessment of the additional benefit, a reimbursement price is negotiated between the pharmaceutical manufacturer and the GKV-SV in accordance with Section 130b of the Social Code - Book V (SGB V). The negotiated reimbursement price applies retroactively from the 7th month after the drug has entered the market in Germany or an approval extension has been granted. The possible amount of the (partial) reimbursement price is regulated by a statutory framework based on the additional benefit as determined by the G-BA.
