The question of determining the appropriate price for health technologies, in particular pharmaceuticals, has occupied the minds of health economists and other health service researchers for many years. In the absence of a perfectly functioning market for health care, pricing is about striking the appropriate balance between securing a fair deal for the health care system, whilst offering a suitable reward for innovation, the latter being important if future research into the discovery of new treatments is to be maintained. Pharmaceutical pricing is also needs to take account of the international dimension, given the possibilities for parallel trade and the different levels of ability to pay for new technologies across countries. Most of the published literature focuses on the description of different pricing systems and the impact of alternative pricing policies. The main contribution of the book by Landa et al is the comprehensive way in which it addresses the topic. Not only are the various pricing and reimbursement mechanisms discussed, the issue of determining price is explored from the perspective of the manufacturer and the public authorities. This is a prelude to discussing strategies for price negotiation. In addition, the specific issues surround the pricing of generics and drugs for rare diseases (aka orphan drugs) are explored. The book is also very timely, in that in recent years there has been a growth in the use of evidence on the value for money of drugs, generated through economic evaluations, in pricing and reimbursement discussions. Therefore, the authors discuss the underlying principles of ‘value based pricing’ and the pros and cons of the ‘risk- sharing’ schemes that have proliferated over the last few years. The book ends with an analysis of the possible role of a national pricing agency in Poland. However, the book is not at all parochial and should be of wide interest to researchers and health care decision-makers in other countries.
