Hungary Today 2020.03.13.
Due to the coronavirus outbreak, as of today, anyone can redeem prescriptions for their relatives, friends, and acquaintances in Hungary, after the Minister of Human Capacities Miklós Kásler simplified the conditions in a new decree.
According to the decree, in a state of emergency declared by the government, pharmaceuticals and medicinal products can be redeemed without proof of prescription or authorization from the person who provides the patient’s social security number (TAJ) and proves his identification. Pharmacies will only record the details of the person who receives the medicinal product and release the pharmaceuticals for relatives, friends, or acquaintances.
