Tip of the Week – Dispensing Take Home Naloxone Kits


Did you know that Take Home Naloxone Kits can be dispensed even if a patient is unable or unwilling to provide their PHN? If you are unable to access the patient’s PHN through Netcare/PIN, you can provide the kit at no charge using the pseudo PHN of NX0000000 to bill Alberta Blue Cross, as long as the patient is a resident of Alberta.
