High Cost Drug

A High Cost Drug (or blood product) is a PRESCRIBED ITEM.

A High Cost Drug (or blood product) is an expensive PRESCRIBED ITEM and represents a disproportionate cost relative to the total cost of the relevant episode in terms of volume and cost.

A High Cost Drug will only be used in a subset of cases within a Healthcare Resource Group and/or used in a subset of Health Care Providers delivering SERVICES under a specific Healthcare Resource Group.
