Pharmacare: Is There a Pill for That?

Canadians currently have varying levels of prescription drug coverage under a mix of public and private plans. Yet, some are still unable to afford certain medications. And some have no coverage at all.

The Canadian Institute of Actuaries believes all Canadians should have access to affordable prescription drugs. But the introduction of a prescription drug framework does not need to mean wholly replacing what we have now with something new.

In Pharmacare: Is There a Pill for That? we present a new possibility – a Canada-wide framework that focuses on filling in the gaps with collaboration between federal, provincial and territorial, and private programs that work better together.
