Today, 29-Oct-15, the Committee for Updating the 2016 Medical Services Basket held its second work meeting.
​At the meeting, committee members held an initial discussion on medicines and technologies in the fields of genetics, dental health, pulmonary medicine, obstetrics and gynecology and otolaryngology.
Some of the medicines/technologies that were brought up for discussion are new, and some are already included in the Health Basket for sub-populations and are candidates this year for a new indication. Some of the medicines that were discussed are intended for a small number of patients, while some are intended for a broad population of patients.
The Committee’s recommendations as to ranking the levels of priority will later be publicized on the Ministry of Health website.
An announcement of the date of the next meeting is to be disseminated.
