The Government of New Brunswick provides prescription drug coverage to eligible New Brunswick residents through the New Brunswick Prescription Drug Program, the New Brunswick Drug Plan and other drug plans (collectively known as the New Brunswick Drug Plans).
The New Brunswick Drug Plans Formulary is a list of the drugs which are eligible benefits under the New Brunswick Drug Plans. The Formulary is updated monthly and all drugs considered for listing as benefits must be reviewed according to the Drug Review Process.
Most drugs listed in the Formulary are “regular” benefits which are reimbursed with no criteria or prior approval requirements. Some drugs are special authorization benefits and have specific criteria that must be met before they are approved for reimbursement (see Formulary Appendix III). Certain drug products are not eligible benefits and are identified on the exclusion list in the Formulary.
