Understanding workplace drug benefits.
More than 24-million Canadians depend on access to medicines and vaccines through employer-sponsored private plans. Ensuring access to the latest innovative medicines leads to better health. Private plans provide coverage to an active working population and their dependents, and to ensure members have timely access to medications they need to get them back to work as quickly as possible.
Employers benefit from drug plans that help employees and their families stay healthy and productive. They help keep Canada’s working population active, minimize absenteeism, disability claims, and the need for costly health interventions. Benefit plans are a major part of compensation packages and help attract and retain employees. Employees who are knowledgeable of their drug plan benefits can make better decisions for themselves and their family.
