FREDERICTON, N.B. – Draft regulations for the New Brunswick Drug Plan are now available online for public review and comment.
"These regulations complement the legislation for the New Brunswick Drug Plan that is working its way through the legislative process," said Health Minister Hugh Flemming. "The plan will help New Brunswickers avoid catastrophic drug costs and ensure that prescription drug insurance is available to every New Brunswicker. It will offer New Brunswickers peace of mind and fair, affordable drug insurance when they need it. I am pleased our government is putting this plan in place."
The regulations will establish key elements for the voluntary phase of the plan, including premiums and co-payments. They will also outline the rules for enrolment and the requirements for insurers and pharmacies.
