A message from Jagmeet Singh on Pharmacare for all in Quebec
We’re can save families money and get better coverage for everyone. Here’s how.
Too many people in Quebec are having to make impossible choices every day – seniors are cutting their pills in half in order to make them last, and families are being forced to choose between paying rent on time or filling their prescriptions.
The cost of deductibles and copays can make it hard to make ends meet.
Trudeau’s Liberal government wants a patchwork plan that works for their friends at the big pharmaceutical and insurance companies – but won’t do anything to help Quebec strengthen it’s groundbreaking pharmacare program.
With Quebec paying the highest drug prices in the country, and 32% of Quebecers reporting they pay more than $500 a year for prescriptions, it’s clear we need leaders who will be allies in helping Quebec lower costs and improve pharmacare.
That’s why I was so excited to announce our plan that will save Quebecers with insurance $550 a year on average.
Our plan will let you use your health card instead of your credit card, and save Quebec billions every year.
I’m hoping you’ll join our NDP team as we fight for public, universal, comprehensive Pharmacare for all. You can find out more about our plan and share your story here.
