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 www.pac.bluecross.ca/hsp.
