Following marketing authorization in Spain, new medicines are assessed by the Inter-Ministerial Pricing Commission for Pharmaceuticals (CIPM), which provides reimbursement recommendations with a maximum ex-factory price. For innovative products, pricing is based on international reference pricing, with additional factors including unmet need and budget impact also playing a role. However, this price setting process can be very time-consuming (12-18 months), involving lengthy negotiations. In September 2017, major reforms were announced that included companies only being allowed to submit single price proposals to the CIPM to shorten this process. Since November 2017, CIPM recommendations have been published on a monthly basis. This research aims to systematically analyze all CIPM recommendations to date.
