BC's Fair Pharmacare is a government program that assists residents with their drug costs. After your family drug costs exceed a certain level (about 2-3% of income), 70% of your drug costs will be covered. After drug costs exceed the next level (about 3-4% of income), 100% will be covered. You are likely already registered for this program; visit Fair Pharmacare for more information.
