Yot Teerawattananon: this is part of the current study by HITAP in thailand. For now, i can say that the threshold was set the first time when we started using economic evaluation to inform the coverage of pharmaceuticals under the NLEM. It was a political decision made by the subcom of NLEM under the that moph, and later was also endorsed by the subcom of the UCBP under the NHSO.
