Alzheimer medication during hospital treatment to be reimbursed in Bulgaria

Thursday 27 May 2010

For the first time in Bulgaria, Alzheimer medication (Aricept and Exelon) is to be reimbursed by the state if it is used during hospital treatment. Irina Ilieva, the Executive Secretary of the Bulgarian Alzheimer society welcomed this decision, saying that the society likes to “think that our joint efforts, including the case we filed at the Commission for the Prevention of Discrimination, contributed to this.” The Society will continue to campaign for the Alzheimer medication to be reimbursed for all treatment (not just in hospital).
