Wie die Pharmaindustrie uns manipuliert
The pharmaceutical industry doesn’t care much that the cost of all of this falls on the statutory health insurance companies. The health insurance companies in this country could save 1.6 billion euros if new, useless ‘mock innovations’ were replaced by preparations which are already available.
But until now the pharmaceutical companies have managed to block any attempt to reduce the amount of money spent on pharmaceutical products. The pharmaceutical companies also know how to use all sorts of marketing tricks to get their products to patients.
And so it happens that many doctors prescribe a preparation made by a particular pharmaceutical company because they have received holidays, electronic goods or even monetary gifts from these companies.
