List of prices notified to Kela

Kela publishes a list of the prices for substitutable products and of the price bands determined on the basis of these prices at least 7 days before the first day of each quarter. The list only includes the products for which a price notification has been sent to Kela.

On the list, those generally available products whose prices are at maximum at the upper limit of the price band at the beginning of the quarter are indicated as being included in the price band. However, the products included in the price band may change during the quarter because the pharmaceutical companies can change the prices of the products every 2 weeks.

Up-to-date information on the products included in the price band and on the prices of the products is available in Kela's Medicinal Products Database at www.kela.fi/laakehaku.
