Expand access to arthritis medications
Today, public drug plans are cost-managing formularies by restricting coverage for existing medications, delaying access to new medications and, at times, failing to address unmet treatment needs. Insurers and pharmacy benefit managers have implemented a wide variety of cost containment programs and tools to manage plan sponsors’ drug plan costs, including case management and preferred pharmacy networks.
Public policies must help create more opportunities for drug plans across Canada to list priority medicines, as well as new medicines as they become available – and expand coverage for existing medicines.
