The Fair PharmaCare program in British Columbia is intended to provide greater financial assistance to British Columbian's for eligible prescription drugs and designated medical supplies. You must be a resident of the Province of British Columbia with an MSP number. The new approach focuses PharmaCare financial assistance to British Columbian's who need it most - the lower your income, the more assistance the government will provide for your prescription drugs.

By coordinating the benefits from BC Fair PharmaCare and the Student Health Plan, many enrolled students will enjoy lower out-of-pocket charges for their eligible prescription drugs.

Students with net income less than $15,000 in the previous taxation year, who have registered for BC Medical Services Plan (MSP) on their own, not under their family, will enjoy the greatest benefit. PharmaCare will pay 70% of eligible prescription drug charges from the first dollar charged to the student and the Student Benefits Plan will pay up to 80% of the remainder!
