Did you know?
Chronic Conditions Affect 2 of every 5 Canadians
This number is growing as our population ages.
With the growing use of Biologic Drugs, the significant costs of these specialty drugs are impacting both Provincial and Employer-Sponsored Employee Benefit Plans.
As a result, an industry wide initiative was launched January 1, 2013 by all Canadian insurers to help protect Canadians’ Drug Coverage.
