No reimbursement for category 8 drugs


The “Interim Measures for the administration of drug use in basic medical insurance” will come into effect in September, which clearly stipulates that eight categories of drugs will not be included in the reimbursement of medical insurance: ① tonic drugs; ② drugs containing precious and endangered wild animals and plants; ③ health care drugs; ④ preventive vaccines and contraceptives; ⑤ drugs for hair loss, weight loss, beauty, smoking cessation, etc.; and (6) drugs that cannot be charged separately because they are included in the diagnosis and treatment items (7) alcohol preparation, tea preparation, oral medicine, etc.; and (8) other drugs that do not meet the requirements of medical insurance.
