Fair Pharmacare Registrations
Fair PharmaCare helps families of British Columbia pay for eligible prescription drugs, pharmaceutical dispensing fees, and some medical supplies.
To register for Fair PharmaCare, families must have MSP coverage. The coverage is income-based – If a family earns less, the family gets more help.
For more information or help with registration, give us a call or stop by and speak to us anytime.
