■Background of this press release In the 2024 dispensing fee revision, handling of items in the 48 OTC drug efficacy groups was added as a calculation requirement for regional support system additions. There have also been negative comments from people working in insurance pharmacies, such as, “Is it really necessary to have it in pharmacies when there are so many products available at drugstores?” and “I don’t expect it to sell well.” There are some items that even pharmacists have never seen before, so some people are wondering, “What kind of OTC drugs should I stockpile?” and “Will it really sell out even if I stock it (will it result in loss)?” There are also voices of concern.
