What is important with the prices for clinic packs?
Please enter only the KHAEP (Hospital Pharmacy Purchasing Price), as clinic packs can be sold only to hospitals pharmacies.

You can state both APU and PPU if you notify a prescription-only clinic pack with level of reimbursement in accordance with § 130b of the German Social Code Book Five (SGB V). Stating the APU § 78 (3a) 1 AMG is, however, mandatory and AEP PPU and AVP PPU remain void.
How are the prices for pharmacy-only, non-prescription medicinal products calculated?
Prices for pharmacy-only, non-prescription medicinal products are calculated according to the Pharmaceutical Price Ordinance in German Social Code Book Five (SGB V). Furthermore, a recommended retail price can be given.
