The New Brunswick Prescription Drug Program HIV/AIDS Plan provides prescription drug coverage for certain antiretroviral drugs used to treat HIV/AIDS to eligible residents of New Brunswick.


New Brunswick residents with an active Medicare card who have been diagnosed with HIV infection and have been registered in the plan by a physician.

If the applicant has existing drug coverage with another drug plan, the applicant must submit a letter from their existing drug plan confirming that the required drugs are not listed on the plan’s formulary.


Beneficiaries of the HIV/AIDS Plan are eligible for certain antiretroviral drugs that are listed on the NB Drug Plans Formulary as benefits for the HIV/AIDS Plan.

The HIV/AIDS Plan has an annual registration fee of $50 and a copayment. The copayment is the portion of the prescription cost that you pay each time you have a prescription filled. The copayment is 20% of the prescription cost up to a maximum of $20. The copayment ceiling is $500 per family unit per plan year.
