It fixed a ceiling price of Rs. 7,250 apiece for bare metal stents, and allowed a maximum retail price of Rs. 29,600 for drug eluting stents of all varieties. The move will be more of a shocker to the hospitals than the companies as it is common knowledge that sticker prices on the stents are multiple times higher than the price at which companies sell these products to the hospitals.
