Topic of generics
Text under: Overview of benefits/generics
Generics are medications that are similar to medications that have been established for years. They contain the same active ingredient as the established original medication and are marketed in the same format, e.g. as tablets or suppositories, and have the same effect. The only difference is that generics can be significantly less expensive than the original.
When you buy generics instead of the expensive original preparation from the list of medications with an increased deductible list of medications with an increased deductible (PDF, 80KB) , you only pay a 10 percent instead of a 20 percent deductible.
Good to know, biosimilars
Biosimilars are biotechnologically produced imitation drugs. They are up to 25 percent cheaper, yet they have the same active substances and the same effect as the original. As your doctor.
