Newfoundland & Labrador

Without a universal prescription drug plan, coverage in Canada vastly differs depending on where you live. Regionally, Atlantic Canada has among the lowest rates of access to prescription medications in the country. In Newfoundland, even publicly-funded programs require dispensing fees or co-payments, which have proven to reduce access. 

This patchwork coverage leaves many Newfoundlanders 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.
