The Patented Medicine Prices Review Board published the second in a three part report series on Alignment Among Public Formularies in Canada

May 4, 2021 — Ottawa, ON — Patented Medicine Prices Review Board

The Patented Medicine Prices Review Board (PMPRB), through the National Prescription Drug Utilization Information System (NPDUIS) research initiative, today published the second in a three part report series on Alignment Among Public Formularies in Canada. This latest report looks at gaps and overlaps in the coverage and funding of oncology drugs across Canada.

The report found that there is significant uniformity in the coverage of oncology drugs in public drug plans in Canada. However, there are notable differences across the country in who pays for these drugs when administered outside hospitals, which may have an effect on the financial burden felt by patients from province to province.

The current report is the first of its kind to map the variations in oncology spending and funding across the country and will be of particular interest to policy makers in their ongoing efforts to provide more equitable and affordable access to drugs for all Canadians.
