In special circumstances, pharmacists can apply for reimbursement. The reimbursement is granted in the form of an exceptional reimbursement or a structural reimbursement.
Exceptional reimbursement is granted, for example, to pharmacies that are unable to carry out the necessary and desirable reconstruction, relocation etc. within the scope of their normal operation.
Structural reimbursement is granted to pharmacies that are unable to maintain a reasonable income, for example due to a modest turnover and a complicated distribution structure.
The expenses for the reimbursement scheme are covered by fees paid by pharmacies throughout Denmark.
