Fair Pharmacare

The Fair PharmaCare plan provides BC families with coverage for eligible prescription drugs and designated medical supplies, based on their net income.

Fair PharmaCare also ensures that B.C. residents, regardless of income, are protected from catastrophic drug costs.

The BC Ministry of Health encourages all eligible British Columbians to register for the plan.

If you:

  • need to register because you have not registered yet, or
  • are unsure if you are registered, or 
  • are unsure of your qualifications for a subsidy, or
  • are unsure of what your deductible is

ask your pharmacist, call Health Insurance BC or visit the Pharmacare website.
