​“Do you have drug coverage?”

With Drug Cost Compare, you can ensure your patients are being prescribed a solution that fits their needs therapeutically, while also helping to lower their out-of-pocket expenses—whether they are covered by a drug plan with a co-pay or are without coverage altogether. 

Medavie Blue Cross created this app as part of our efforts to help improve the affordability and sustainability of drug costs in Canada. When all stakeholders have access to accurate information, we can all make informed choices on our personal health and help set the future course for our healthcare system.
