Medication Costs and Reimbursements - Prescription Drug Coverage In Canada

health drugs insurance national

There is a national system of health insurance in Canada. This program, however, does not include coverage for prescription drugs. Instead, Canadian citizens may obtain supplemental coverage through an employer or by purchasing a policy in the private market. In addition, for certain segments of the population, such as senior citizens, each Canadian province provides public coverage for other health services that are excluded from the national health insurance. Prescription drugs are covered in these programs, but the exact level of benefits varies across income levels and across provinces.
