Universal Drug Coverage On Legislature Agenda

The upcoming Legislative session which opens tomorrow afternoon could be raucous with the state of the economy, shale gas and a provincial election in less than a year. 

A universal prescription drug plan is expected to be unveiled. Fundy-River Valley independent M-L-A Dr. Jim Parrot tells CHSJ News expensive drugs for catastrophic illness should be included but we should be thinking outside the box.

He says we should try to make a deal with the Fed and another Medical Societies in the country to create a national system so no one has to go it alone.

Dr. Parrot goes so far as to say the survival of Medicare depends on getting this right.
