Generic price link

Practice of setting the price of a generic in relationship to the originator medicine, usually at a certain percentage lower than the originator medicine price. The design of this generic price link policy may vary, with different percentages for the different generics (the first generic coming to the market, second generic, etc.), and in some cases the prices of originator medicines might also be part of the policy, i.e. that they will also be required to decrease.
