Fair PharmaCare Assistance Levels - Regular

Last updated: January 2019

This table shows the amount of PharmaCare assistance for families based on their net income.

Once you've met the family deductible, PharmaCare covers 70% of eligible costs until you meet the family maximum. After you meet the family maximum, PharmaCare covers 100% of eligible costs.

If someone in your family was born before 1940, please see the Fair PharmaCare Enhanced Assistance.
