NB Drug Plans - Organ Transplant Recipients
The following public drug plans provide drug coverage for eligible New Brunswick residents who do not have other drug coverage:
• The New Brunswick Drug Plan covers a broad range of drugs, including anti-rejection drugs.
• The Organ Transplant Plan covers certain anti-rejection drugs.
New Brunswick residents with a valid Medicare card who have received a solid organ or bone marrow transplant may apply for these public drug plans if they do not have coverage for any portion of the cost of anti-rejection drugs from any other drug plan.
The drugs that are eligible for coverage with the plans are listed on the New Brunswick Drug Plans Formulary (see Related Links).
