Cancer Drug Reimbursement
We reimburse hospitals for administration of injectable cancer drugs used according to established funding criteria for patient eligibility. Our drug reimbursement programs are administered by the Provincial Drug Reimbursement Programs (PDRP) Unit.
Go to these pages for information about funding eligibility criteria for each PDRP program:
We review and process the hospital and the cancer centre submissions for reimbursement. Hospitals are reimbursed based on established reimbursement cost per unit (e.g., per mg) of drugs administered to eligible patients.
Hospitals and regional cancer centres must make sure that patients meet the approved criteria for each drug before treatment begins, and that the drugs are used according to the funding criteria.
