TORONTO, Aug. 9, 2019 /CNW/ - Earlier today the Government of Canada announced changes to the Patented Medicine Price Review Board. These changes should significantly reduce the cost of new medicines in Canada. 

Life and health insurers play a vital role by providing more than 25 million Canadians with access to a wide range of prescription drugs and other health supports through extended health care plans. Manulife has been working with government and health care stakeholders to promote solutions that lower the cost of medicines and extend prescription drug coverage to all Canadians through a wide range of benefit plans. 

"Manulife strongly supports measures to reduce the cost of medications," said Donna Carbell, Head of Group Benefits, Manulife Canada. "Today's announcement is an important one because it will help employers continue to provide comprehensive drug coverage to employees and their families."

Manulife is proud to work with more than 21,000 employers to deliver workplace health benefits including prescription drug coverage, dental and other health coverage to 5 million Canadians. Our plans are designed to help keep Canadian workers and their families healthy resulting in healthier workplaces for employees.
