Universal pharmacare coverage for Canadians is within reach, based on cost estimates in a new C.D. Howe Institute study. In “Filling the Gaps: A Prescription for Universal Pharmacare,” authors Rosalie Wyonch and William Robson find there are ways to close the gaps in prescription drug coverage and protect households from excessive costs when in acute need through the expansion of public insurance.
