Abstract

Health technology assessment was first introduced to the Republic of Korea in 2006 by amending the Medical Services Act. The Committee of New Health Technology Assessment (CNHTA) is the ministerial committee that has the responsibility of reviewing the safety and effectiveness of new health technology. CNHTA review plays a gatekeeping role for new health technology in Korea, which can increase the burden on patients in Korea, either by out-of pocket payments or co-pays for National Health Insurance covered service. This kind of gatekeeping is a function of the healthcare system in many countries where no financial cap such as a fixed budget or diagnosis-related group payment is applied. However, it has been argued that gatekeeping works against industrial promotion policy. (The rest omitted)
