Prescription Drug Program - Cystic Fibrosis Plan
The Cystic Fibrosis Plan is a provincial drug plan that provides coverage for certain cystic fibrosis drugs for eligible New Brunswick residents.
New Brunswick residents diagnosed with cystic fibrosis may apply for the Cystic Fibrosis Plan if they:
- have a valid New Brunswick Medicare card, and
- do not have coverage for any portion of the cost of cystic fibrosis drugs from any other drug plan
The drugs that are eligible for coverage with this plan are listed on the New Brunswick Drug Plans Formulary.
The Cystic Fibrosis Plan has an annual premium of $50 and a copayment per prescription. The copayment is 20% of the prescription cost up to a maximum of $20. There is a maximum copayment amount of $500 per family unit per plan year (July 1st to June 30th).
To apply for the Cystic Fibrosis Plan, you must submit a completed Cystic Fibrosis Plan Application Form.
