Abstract: The authors reflect on the article by S. Eckermann and B. Pekarsky which challenges several concepts including the methods of determining cost-effectiveness threshold for assessing the potential health technology in public healthcare system. They discuss the National Institute forHealth and Care Excellence (NICE) in Great Britain, the quality-adjusted life years (QALY), and disinvestment.
