Canada’s Provincial Drug Formulary System
Posted 01 November 2011 | By
Contrary to popular belief, the Canadian public healthcare system does not provide every resident with free prescription drug coverage and healthcare services. The truth is, Canada has a fairly comprehensive public healthcare system that covers some but not all drugs and services. In fact, prescription drug coverage is not available to the majority of Canadians under the public system and these individuals must either pay full price out of pocket or obtain private insurance.
