Italian term or phrase: ripiano degli sfondamenti
A blurb by the pharmaceutical industry setting out their demands for fairer treatment. Here's a couple of examples:
"meccanismo di ripiano del 60% dello sfondamento attraverso un pay back finanziario, prevedendo forme di riduzione che tengano conto del contributo delle singole imprese allo sviluppo e siano in funzione degli investimenti nelle aree della ricerca clinica, di quella preclinica, dell’innovazione, della produzione e dell’esportazione"
"patto tra Governo e Regioni che responsabilizzi tutte le parti interessate al ripiano degli eventuali sfondamenti ed eviti che le imprese siano illegittimamente chiamate a sostenere oltre alla propria quota anche quella di competenza delle Regioni"
I'd be grateful for any help!

paying back the overspend
Explanation:
Hi Patricia
among other things, *ripiano* also means *ripianamento*

5.1.6. NATIONWIDE DRUGS EXPENDITURE BUDGET
Since 1994, drug expenditure has been capped by annual drug expenditure budgets. In theory, delisting should have been used by CUF during the year to prevent expected year-end budget overruns. In practice, budgets have always been exceeded but
delistings were used only in 1996.
In 1998 the rule was changed:
In case of budget overspending, 60% of the deficit would be borne by the pharmaceutical industry and the distribution companies (wholesalers and pharmacists)
In the case of expected year-end budget overruns, the Ministry of Health, drawing on proposals put forward by a new Committee (Pharmaceuticals Expenditure Committee, with representatives of CUF, pharmaceutical companies, wholesalers, pharmacists and experts) would directly intervene to “identify the measures
needed” to prevent such an overspend from occurring
In 1999 the pay-back was postponed and the logic governing the attribution of the share of the overspend to be paid back by the wholesalers, the pharmacists and the pharmaceutical companies were defined. Furthermore, due to the foreseen budget
overrun, the Pharmaceuticals Expenditure Committee laid down a document outlining some proposals for reducing expenditure.
In 2000 only one of the Committee’s proposals was applied (the 5% price cut for out of patent branded drugs) and the pay back was newly postponed. The price cut would take place in June and December 2000. However the first price-cutting has not been
implemented.
