201 - Does a letter announcing provincial listing for a drug need to be PAAB'd? The letter will be a direct mailing from the pharmaceutical company to HCPs in the province announcing the listing, reimbursement criteria and indication of the product.



  • A letter announcing provincial listing for a drug is required to undergo preclearance if includes reimbursement criteria/indication. Note that the preclearance exemption under PAAB code section only applies to a formulary listing announcement which is not linked to a therapeutic claim in any way (e.g. an ad containing only the product name and "Now on formulary").
