The Department of Health has finalized a memorandum of understanding with the New Brunswick Pharmacists' Association.
Under the new agreement, dispensing fees will go up from $10.50 to $11 per prescription under the New Brunswick Prescription Drug Program. The NB PharmaCheck program--a medication review program--will also be extended to Social Development clients covered under the prescription drug program.
This is the first MOU signed with pharmacists. It remains effect until March of next year.
