Pharmacare for All?

Back to article »

  • Our national health care is broken, partly because it is too generous. Everything is covered with no cost being shared by the patient. Pharmacare is just the opposite~ far too much is not covered and for many their share of the cost is prohibited.
    But yet a national healthcare plan, to be successful, must provide both aspects of the needed care. We must restrain the costs of health services by having the patients share part of the costs of the services they receive and pass those savings on to reduce the patients share of pharmacare.

  • The idea of such a plan sounds very good but how it would work out in the end may not necessarily be very simply. Unlike, say C.P.P . where rates, age etc. are quite easily established,this could turn out to be much more complex insofar as determining entitlement , diagnosis,degree /severity etc . Thus. I am inclined to adopt a ‘wait and see’ stance at this juncture..
