Changes to drug coverage for Health Science Professionals now in effect

Under the 2014-2019 collective agreement recently ratified by health science professionals, improvements in drug coverage are now in effect.

Every member covered by the Health Science Professionals contract should be receiving a letter outlining the changes from Pacific Blue Cross in the coming days.  A sample letter is attached here.

The plan now covers 100% of eligible expenses for drugs listed on the BC Pharmacare formulary, Prometrium, approved Special Authority drugs, oral, and injectable contraceptives, and 50% for non-Pharmacare drugs.

Complete details, including details about how to be reimbursed for drugs paid for since September 2013, are available on a dedicated HSPBA drug plan website at
