How much is that drug?
0 have signed. Let’s get to 1,500.
We worry about the price we are expected to pay when filling prescriptions.
Why are we handed a stapled, labeled white bag and then feel pressured to pay whatever price is asked?
We are told the price of everything else we purchase in advance and make our own decisions about value. But not when it comes to prescriptions.
This is because our doctors and nurse practitioners currently have no real-time access to drug costs.
We expect to have conversations with our prescribers about drug affordability. We value that this dialogue takes place in the neutral space of their offices.
We have the right to know drug costs directly from our physicians and nurse practitioners, not just learning once at the pharmacy.
- Minister of Health, Ontario
Hon. Dr. Eric Hoskins
- Premier of Ontario
Hon. Kathleen O. Wynne
We respectfully that the Ministry of Health mandate the integration of drug costs on electronic medical records by EMR providers. Ontario Drug Benefit reimbursements to pharmacies are made transparent by simple integration into the EMR drug formulary. Drug costs are then transparent to physicians, nurse practitioners and patients to ensure a much-needed dialogue with patients at the point of care. Ensuring drug affordability improves prescription adherence to recommendations and reduces physical and psychological complications.
Cost effective care is not possible when end-users do not know costs.
