Notices to the Minister

Each time theList of Medications for the basic prescription drug insurance plan and theList of Medications - Institutions are updated, INESSS will publish an Notice to the Minister, which sets out the recommendations made to the Minister about products evaluated by INESSS as well as the rationale for accepting or rejecting the products, based on criteria specified under the Act.

Please note that, in accordance with section 5 of the Act respecting the Institut national d’excellence en santé et en services sociaux, INESSS must publish the notices and recommendations it sends to the Minister. However, INESSS is also subject to the Act respecting access to documents held by public bodies and the protection of personal information. As a result, some information may be obliterated from the publication in accordance with right of access restrictions. Such information is therefore blacked out in accordance with the Act.

In the interest of increasing transparency, INESSS will publish any information it is allowed to make public.
