A new agreement between the Alberta Pharmacists’ Association, Alberta Blue Cross, and the Alberta government expands the list of services available through pharmacists.
Financial highlights of the new policy include:
- four years of predictable funding,
- transparency of prescription pricing,
- changes to dispensing fees, and
- an updated pharmacy services framework that compensates pharmacists for the services they provide to Albertans.
In order to ensure better coordination between pharmacies and government when new public programs are introduced, the Alberta Pharmacists’ Association will act as the common voice for pharmacists with Alberta Health.
