Who is the Better Pharmacare Coalition?
The BPC is a joining together of provincial and national health organizations and other groups with a mandate to speak on behalf of its 2,000,000-plus members on issues related to the Government of British Columbia's PharmaCare (BC PharmaCare) program. The coalition was formed in 1997 in response to BC PharmaCare policy development not reflective of the medical literature, best clinical practice and the needs of patients in BC.
- The BPC works to ensure appropriate and timely BC PharmaCare program coverage for evidence-based prescription medications and health products;
- Our members want improved coverage of medications on the BC drug formulary that will get them out of the hospital and back to work contributing to our provincial economy, not costing it money;
- The BPC expects the Government to make decisions that are focused on patient needs.
