The Group of IX has submitted its recommendations on Pharmacare to the Minister of Health.   There is agreement on a 75/25% split on costs to the program and it has recommended no change in the current premium ($424.00) or prescription co-pay ($382.00 max).   There will be new information on payment options in the Pharmacare Renewal Form.   With the introduction of a Family Pharmacare program, the Group of IX is requesting additional staff to insure that proper information is made available to assist those who wish to join these programs.
