Health Minister Dr. Rajitha Senaratne states that the price of heart stents will be reduced from next week.

“The current price of a stent is around Rs. 300,000 and after the price reduction, it will be available to the public at Rs.105,000, Minister Senaratne said.  Accordingly the price of stents will go down by Rs.195,000 which is a huge amount.

The Minister also stated that the National Medicine Regulatory Authority (NMRA) has already taken steps to formulate the price reduction. The main intention of all these price reductions is creating a healthy society that promotes the development of the country.

The Government has also announced ceiling prices for Full Blood Count and Antigen tests. Accordingly, the Health Minister has ordered all private hospitals to continue price ceiling on Full Blood Count at Rs.250 and Antigen test at Rs.1000.

The Health Ministry further warned that strict action will be taken against the laboratories and private hospitals that ignore the restriction.
