The FNHA will join BC PharmaCare, becoming part of the provincial drug benefits insurance program.
The transition to PharmaCare is part of an overall plan to bring decision-making about health benefits closer to home and into the of hands of First Nations people. Bringing the program home to BC is our first step in improving it. The FNHA PharmaCare plan will be a fully paid plan and BC PharmaCare will be the first payer for FNHA clients. Key benefits of this transition include:
- Starting October 1, 2017, PharmaCare will take over processing prescriptions for all FNHA clients to better support them in meeting their wellness goals.
Find out more about the move to PharmaCare and how we can prepare clients, health care providers and staff for the impending change.
