Document How can the same item appear as both a Drug and an Appliance in the Drug Tariff?

A drug that is currently listed in Part VIIIA of the Drug Tariff may also appear as an appliance in Part IX if a successful application is made by a manufacturer.

Where a product is in both Part VIIIA and Part IX of the tariff, the following rules apply for reimbursement:
  • If prescribed generically, reimbursement will be made on the Part VIIIA product. No endorsement is required.
     
  • If prescribed as a brand linked to an item listed in Part VIIIA, reimbursement will be made on the prescribed branded product. No endorsement is required.
     
  • If prescribed as an appliance brand / manufacturer listed in Part IX, reimbursement will be made on the prescribed item. An endorsement may be required.
