Definition

For a given product, the number of dispensations presented for reimbursement is the number of times the product has been dispensed in a pharmacy, with partial or total coverage, by the compulsory or complementary health insurance.

Concretely, this is the number of times the product line appeared on a pharmacy receipt, for a presentation for reimbursement of compulsory health insurance and / or of the complementary.

Example

If a product is dispensed 200 times, including 160 times with a portion of reimbursement by compulsory or complementary health insurance strictly greater than 0% (i.e. a portion of the remainder to be paid for the patient strictly less than 100%), then the number of dispensations presented for reimbursement is 160, whatever the sales volumes.

Tip

The number of dispensations differs from volume sales in the sense that the dispensations count the acts of delivery and not the number of boxes delivered.

Terminology

The number of dispensations presented for reimbursement can be translated into English by Number of dispensations reimbursed.
