What is the Bundesmedikationsplan (BMP, federal medication plan)?
Since 1 October 2016 you are entitled to receive a Bundesmedikationsplan if you take or apply at least three treatments with a systemic effect that are paid by the public health insurance at the same time (see http://www.kbv.de/html/medikationsplan.php ). The application needs to be intended to last for at least 28 days. The BMP can be handed out to you by your doctor or pharmacist. Ideally it should comprise all prescription drugs as well as self-medication. It lists the active substance, dosage, the reason and advice for the intake. In addition, the paper plan has a barcode, which contains the all its information in digital form and enables scanning and updating it in the doctors’ practice, in pharmacies and hospitals.
