Over the years, provinces have been continuing to download costs of prescription drug expenses onto private health plans. As a result, businesses and their employees are paying more and more for healthcare coverage, due to outdated Medicare policies and despite public funding.
CapriCMW is a member of The Benefits Alliance Group, a national organization of independent benefits and pension advisory firms advocating on behalf of our clients and all private plan sponsors.
With the federal election date looming, affordable, easy and timely access to healthcare services is an important issue that should be top of mind for all Canadians.
This period of time is an opportunity to engage with local representatives to support a modernized Medicare framework and promote a cost-effective solution that can be developed and deployed quickly.
We encourage you to write to your local MPs from each party to raise these concerns. Not sure who your local MP is? Find out here.
