Practitioner exemptions

  • PharmaCare coverage will be provided for a patient who meets the Limited Coverage criteria, and whose prescription is written by an orthopedic surgeon who has entered into a Collaborative Prescribing Agreement.

  • Due to the individual nature of each Collaborative Prescribing Agreement, the Agreement must be signed by the prescriber and not his/her delegate.

Special notes

  • The total duration of therapy includes the period during which doses are administered post-operatively in an acute care (hospital) setting, and the approval period is for the balance of the total duration after discharge (i.e., for outpatients only).
