60.0.2. For the purpose of making a listing agreement, the Minister may temporarily exclude a medication whose cost is covered under the sixth paragraph of section 60 from the basic plan coverage. The exclusion does not apply to a person whose application for authorization for payment of the cost of the medication was accepted before the publication date of the notice of its exclusion or in the cases prescribed by a regulation made under the sixth paragraph of section 60.
The notice of a medication’s exclusion is published on the Board’s website and comes into force on the date of its publication or any later date specified in the notice. A notice of the end date of the exclusion is also published on the website. Publication on the Board’s website imparts authentic value to such notices. The notices are not subject to the requirements concerning publication and date of coming into force set out in sections 8, 15 and 17 of the Regulations Act (chapter R-18.1).
