Pioneer­ing drugs.

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Health Min­is­ter An­dreas Xan­thos has is­sued a cir­cu­lar al­low­ing pa­tients and doctors to re­quest im­ports of pioneer­ing drugs that are not on the EOPYY na­tional health in­sur­ance or­ga­ni­za­tion’s ap­proved list when the medicines in ques­tion are for treat­ing a life-threat­en­ing or de­bil­i­tat­ing ill­ness. The de­ci­sion will give pa­tients ac­cess to medicines that have been ap­proved by ma­jor drug au­thor­i­ties abroad but are not on EOPYY’s list. Re­quests can be made via email at ex­pos­i­ and must be ac­com­pa­nied by the pa­tient’s med­i­cal his­tory, lab tests, bib­li­og­ra­phy sup­port­ing the need for the spe­cific drug and other doc­u­men­ta­tion. The fi­nal de­ci­sion on whether the pa­tient will re­ceive the med­i­ca­tion or not will rest with a spe­cial com­mit­tee.
