How Ontario’s underused public pharmacare program could save private drug plans

This is an article from last year about the Ontario Trillium Drug plan that was due to coordinate with private plans in the fall of 2017.  It was delayed due to the introduction of OHIP+ but is still on the agenda.  There is a slight chance of its introduction in 2018 depending on the outcome of the next provincial election. Regardless, we will keep pushing the ministry to update their systems to make insurers pay your employees claims properly and charge you appropriately.

As private drug-insurance plans buckle under the costs of new medications that can prolong lives but only at massive expense, the Ontario government is planning to step in, at a cost that could reach into the hundreds of millions of dollars.
