Will you fund drug X?
That is up to Pharmac. Currently Pharmac makes funding decisions independently based on the health returns that different drugs provide. Pharmac works better when politicians don't interfere and try and tell them what to do, and we want to keep it like that. In fact, we want that model broadened over our whole health system so that we can be certain we are getting the best return on each dollar invested.
