What is the high cost threshold?
There are many medicines which are included in the high-cost threshold. The high-cost threshold refers to the system where a medicine is tax-subsidised, and the state pays a portion of the costs. The TLV is the government body which determines which medicines are eligible for reimbursement status and included in the high-cost threshold.
The high-cost threshold includes numerous types of medicines as well as medical devices and other products. Certain over-the-counter medicinal products are also included in the high-cost threshold.
