British Columbia

Without a universal prescription drug plan, coverage in Canada vastly differs depending on where you live. British Columbia has lowest rate of access to prescription medications in the country. Like Manitoba, access to public coverage is based on family income and requires a deductible, which has been proven to reduce access.

This patchwork coverage leaves many in British Columbia without access to the medication they need, either because they don’t have a prescription drug plan or have plans that don’t cover the cost.

Everyone should have equal access to the prescription drugs they need regardless of where they live. It’s time for a universal prescription drug plan.
