The HA Drug Formulary will be updated quarterly in January, April, July and October each year to incorporate the following changes to the drug list as endorsed by relevant committees under established mechanisms：
a) New drugs and indications approved at recent DAC meeting；
b) Addition of drugs not evaluated by DAC；
c) Changes in drug category status arising from funded programmes for
new drugs and expansion of safety net coverage;
d) Changes resulting from biennial comprehensive review as endorsed
by DMC; and
e) Deletion of drugs due to dormant use or product discontinuation.
New drugs added to the HA Drug Formulary are highlighted in yellow for easy reference.
The list of Self-financed drugs which are available for purchase by patients at HA pharmacies will also be updated along the same schedule.
