Canada’s provincial pharmacare systems have flaws not found in other developed countries that could be addressed by integrating prescription drug coverage into the broader healthcare system, according to a report released today by the C.D. Howe Institute. In “Rethinking Pharmacare in Canada,” authors Steven Morgan, Jamie Daw and Michael Law find that integrating pharmaceuticals into the healthcare system by covering medically necessary prescription drugs at little cost to patients would result in improved performance on key pharmacare policy goals.
