Affordable Medications for Canadians without a Health Plan
Sometimes people say…this sounds too good to be true! Co-Pharm in collaboration with Genrus United and the Co-Operative Council of Nova Scotia has negotiated on your behalf so you don’t have to pay as much for your prescriptions, just like insurance. Because the program covers the most prescribed generic drugs for chronic conditions, mental health, erectile dysfunction, and birth control, the monthly premium you pay is a fraction of the cost for insurance.
