7.9 Medication Management (Plan M)
General Policy Description
Plan M covers individuals for eligible medication management services (e.g., clinical services, medication review services, and publicly funded vaccinations) provided by pharmacies.
Coverage is provided for individuals, rather than families.
Coverage under Plan M does not extend to patients in acute or extended care hospitals.
Patients covered under Plan B (Permanent Residents of Licensed Long-term Care Facilities) are not covered for Medication Review Services.
Individuals are eligible for Plan M coverage if they meet the eligibility requirements for coverage established in the Clinical Services policy, Medication Review Services policy or the Pharmacist Administration of Drugs and Vaccines policy.
Plan M coverage cannot be provided retroactively.
Plan M covers the cost of clinical services, medication review services and publicly funded vaccination services provided by pharmacies up to the limits PharmaCare has established for these services.
