In 2016, the Swiss Federal Office for Health (FOH) planned to modify the reference pricing scheme for generics. Rather than using a copayment of 10 per cent on low-cost and a 20 per cent copayment on high-cost generics, it was to set the benchmark at the 25th percentile of the price distribution and make patients pay out of pocket for the full excess of price over this benchmark in addition to a basic 10 per cent copayment.
