NHF ISSUES SUPPLEMENTARY INDIVIDUAL BENEFITS LIST

A Supplemental Individual Benefits List has been issued by the National Health Fund, NHF. This list updates the first Individual Benefits Booklet which was issued in November 2004. Since that time the NHF has been adding a number of prescription items on a continuous basis, based on recommendations from the NHF?s Medical Review Committee.

Approximately 170 prescription items are on the Supplemental List including drugs for Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia ( Enlarged Prostate). This condition was recently added to the list of illnesses covered by the NHF. Four (4) active ingredients have been included for this condition: Terazon, Finasteride,Tamsulosin and Doxazosin comprising fifteen prescription items.

The NHF has also updated the Guidelines for Healthcare Professionals which is now being distributed to medical practitioners and pharmacists.
