HEALTH TERM - GENERIC DRUG

| No Comments

Generic_Aug 2009.jpg

Thumbnail image for HealthCareTerm.jpgDefinition:  A drug which is exactly the same as a brand name drug and which may be manufactured and marketed after the brand name drug's patent expires (approximately 9-10 years after the brand-name drug entered the market).

Generic drugs cost significantly less than brand name drugs, and are identical in terms of efficacy, safety, side effect profile, and dosing.

Important exceptions to this may include drugs such as immunosuppressants or drugs with a "narrow therapeutic index" such as anti-arrhythmics.

"Narrow therapeutic index" refers to drugs that have a high rate of side effects at commonly administered dosages.

HEALTH TERM - SINGLE PAYER

Thumbnail image for HealthCareTerm.jpgWhat is Single Payer?

Definition:
A system of health care characterized by universal and comprehensive coverage. Single-payer health care is similar to the health services provided by Medicare in the US.

The government pays for care that is delivered in the private (mostly not-for-profit) sector. Doctors are in private practice and are paid on a fee-for-service basis from government funds. The government does not own or manage their medical practices or hospitals.

Single-payer health care is distinct and different from socialized medicine in which doctors and hospitals work for and draw salaries from the government.
