Finland's National Pensions Institute last month announced the addition to the reimbursement catalogue of a number of new clinical preparations used for enteral feeding. Three products are earmarked for 75% reimbursement after an initial co-payment, and a further five will be reimbursed by 50%. According to the health insurance law, there is a sliding scale of reimbursement. Any amount exceeding the fixed co-payment of euro 5 ($6.30) will be reimbursed at 75% and if it exceeds the higher fixed co-payment of euro 10 for certain products, it will be reimbursed at 50%.
