Drug submissions for Formulary consideration need to be submitted electronically through a secure file transfer site (portal). The manufacturer needs to email email@example.com to access to the portal for the first time.
The manufacturer will be sent a link to a secure portal to submit the documents. Once a manufacturer has submitted through this process once, all subsequent submissions can be made the same way, using the same portal link.
Oncology submissions should also be directed to the Nova Scotia Cancer Care Program at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have any questions about the process, please contact the Department of Health and Wellness at email@example.com.
